Yep - the code is shoddy too... again, only for layout. You should lay it out 'proper' straight into DW.

hello again
I have decided on your advice to ditch Fireworks, partly because my trial period has expired anyway!
I have redone my page in dreamweaver.
Firstly, although I have lined up the text in the three columns using guides
in the local mode, when it is uploaded or previewed in the browser, the
alignment is all wrong. I have just tried to alter it by sight and guesswork
to look approx right, but would appreciate a more 'scientific' approach.

secondly, is there a leading facility for adjusting text?

hope you can help please?

the page in question is:
www.rennart.co.uk/renniesindexpage2.html

many thanks

The scientific approach (and the correct approach) is to use div tags for layout, positioned with CSS. In fact CSS is the answer to both of your questions!

Hi !

Firstly, trying to line things up using page breaks (line return) is not the right approach. I'd strip the headings out and redo them - you have loads of redundant code in there. Styles 1-9 !

You're also designing a site with tables which is asking for trouble ! You need to get your head around CSS ...

All your lines are set as paragraphs, so they have a double line space. The reason that your headings don't line up is that paragraphs (<p>) have automatic top/bottom margins and your cells different a number of paragraphs in. Hard to explain, just start those again. You will send yourself insane trying to align things like that in tables / design view. We've all been there though !

Chin up !

OK - I dug into your code (it's dirty in there...)

For heading one you have:
Code:
<p class="style4"><span class="style5"><br/>
        <span class="style6">shop</span></span></p>
Heading two:
Code:
<p><br/>
        <br/>
      <span class="style9">lifestyle</span></p>
The code should be the same if you want them to look the same...
It really should be (we'll assume style-4 is correct for now)
Code:
<div class="style4"> shop </div>
and
<div class="style4"> lifestyle </div>
That's all... have you dared to look in code view yet ?

Yeah, but your answers were much better and in-depth than mine. I'll butt out and let you take this one

Default thankyou for advice

hello and many thanks.
I realise that I must get to understand CSS.
As you can see I am very new to all of this and perhaps
have tried to 'run before walking'.

thankyou again.
