Hi,

I've done a fairly simple website but everytime i publish it to see what it looks like, it never looks the same as what it looks like in Dreamweaver.

When its published its normally larger than the screen and has scroll bars on the side and bottom.

How do i set the page size so it is always within the screen size and won't need scrolling.

Do any of the following make a difference:
1) My web page is based on a table
2) i've got bits and bats of Flash and fireworks included in it.

I just want the web page to look consistent not constantly changing

Please help

The only way to accomplish a consistent look is with CSS! Tables are not for content design, they are for "Tubular Data"! Tables will always be inconsistent unless they are using CSS. Learn DIVS/CSS and you will find a whole new world. Just like i have done with PHP. Thanks to DJ :-D

And remember that vertical scrollbars are common, and the huge majority of websites have them :)
