OK, I put together a simple page using a dreamweaver sample while I learn to do my own thing.

See it here: http://www.baatfam.net/

Everything is fine execept when the page is expanded on a wide monitor past about 1400 pixals or so, then things on the page expand also. I'd like them to stay fixed. Possible? Impossible? Scrap the page and do it right?

I'm new with Dreamweaver, only a few weeks, but I'm studing hard, working my way through tutorials, reading a couple of books, reading this forum and experimenting.
But this little thing is driving me crazy.

My html and css is weak still. (Worked with fusion for a couple of years, so I never learned anything:mrgreen: )

Thanks,
Bob T.

you are using a table set at 100%. If you want a fixed size content i would advice
1 using divs not tables,
make a wrapper div set to the size you want then centre the wrapper so what ever resolution screen , the 'page' will be consistent and of course centre screen
