Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone might know how to help me out here seeing as this is driving me crazy...

In DreamWeaver, I formatted my site using tables but for some reason everytime I createa new table I can't start typing at the top left hand part of the table. Instead, the cursor automatically goes to the middle of the newly created table. Anyknow know how to fix this so I can start typing at the very top of the tables and not somewhere in the middle?

ditto, i started out w/ tables couple weeks back but had a hardtime with it, then recreated my site with Divs and so much more easier
