Hi Alegrio,
The size of the template depends what you keep it.
You can have a fixed values or make it stretchable size with screen

Normally the width is kept for 800px, it fits for standard 800X600 screen resolutions and comes ok with larger resolutions aswell.
Regarding stretchable design you can see the VTM "Control Tables" at forum index you will have the idea.

Thanks for the reply,
I have put one of my new pages up at:
My screen is 1200 and it looks fine, if you have 800 could you please see if this sizes correctly,
Thanks you

Looks fine on 1600x1200, which is what I use.

Without the ability to view the code, I'd have to believe the center table on the other pages are fixed-width rather than based on percentage, making them appear a bit narrow, but that does little to impair readability. Nice use of a monochromatic color scheme.

Hello John,
Yes, the other pages are 725px, and just to narrow to work with, I have some pages 22,000 px long and as I never did create a proper template........
I will be changing over to the larger page.

Thank you for relying,

You can resize your own screen reso and look.. I resized to 800x600 and you have side scroll bars. At 1024x768 it looks fine.

BTW this is a nice looking layout and template.. if this is your first then you have made a great job with it :)

Thank you,
I started using a computer just over a year ago and started this site in August/2005, a trained eye will see many errors in the layout and from page to page, I am not concerned as this first year was for learning.
I am just now starting a second site and hope for a more polished look.

* I do have another Q regarding this page, does this require a new post or may I tack on here?

Thank you for the encouragment.....

Ok, where your images muck up on the sides and the footer I would make the footer a small image for each corner and the center bit could be a small 2px wide and as high as the graphic needs to be and create that as a background for the row.
Having as a background means then you can write your copy right text and it will also expand when needed.
Since the right side has no corners I would make a small column there and bg with white.

White text on gold background very hard to read.....

Hi John,

Yes, that is light, I am trying to keep very soft theme,
I do not remember the exact code, blue commonly used for body text, close to AAD4FF,?
What would you think of that?

Thanks John,
