View Full Version : site based on tables - not displaying properly

02-07-2006, 08:10 PM
The problem I'm having is images aren't lining up correctly, and my table cells are not staying the right size. I'll try to explain the best I can. I'm using Dreamweaver 8, and my main browser is explorer 6.0. I have a table that covers the entire page (100%.) Several rows, mostly 1 column, parts of it are 2 columns. First 5 rows contain a flash.swf banner, a background picture, a logo, the same background picture, and a menu.swf. I'm having spacing issues in firefox and netscape that puts gaps between each row. After the first 5 rows come my main problem. I'm trying to create a rounded text box with a graphic on the left side (that I can also put information over.) In my 6th row I have 2 columns. In the left hand column is where I want my first background graphic titled "corner." I want it to be fixed at width="221" height="25". In the right column Is where I want my main body to go with text. I want this to expand the rest of the screen (vertically and horizontally), stetching in each browser. In the next row there really only needs to be 1 column - matching up with the "corner" image above. I want this to be width="221" height="100%". I want this to stretch to the bottom of the main body I spoke about above. Right now the "corner" and "side" image are not displaying properly. If you view on a smaller screen it shrinks - cutting off the rounded edge, and if you view on a larger screen the "corner" image begins to repeat itself. Attached is the code that was created in Dreamweaver 8. You can view the pages at http://home.bellsouth.net/p/pwp-nofx1728 or http://www.geocities.com/nofx1727 . I've noticed that the sites aren't displaying my code correctly if you view source, that is why i'm attaching it here. Never mind, for some reason it's not adding the attachment, so I'm going to paste it in here.
