Default HELP Text cell of pages not sticking to cell widths of template

Hello all and happy new year!

I have a problem with a website i am designing. I needed the site to fit the browser window so that the user did not have to scroll horizontally...to do this i changed the dimensions of the template table to w = 1000px H = 600 px. This is how the template is designed


Video/audio goes into the right cell - however the center cell (Where the text goes) is where i am having the most trouble. The cell expanded with the text instead of the text fitting the dimensions of the cell. In order to correct this i defined the width of the cell 775px and used this code

<td width="775px" style="table-layout:fixed"

This fixed the problem with most pages

However some pages expanded with the text as did the top banner; despite me changing the template code

So there is my problem. IM banking on your guys new year good will.. please i really am stuck!

If i can make it any clearer just say

without looking at your code im going to have to guess at the cause of your problem.

first of all, try putting pixel widths on all of your inner td's - eg:
<td style="width:200px;"> code here </td> and make sure they add up to the width of the outter most td (your first table in other words)

make sure your images have a width and height also..
