Basic DW Table issue - ooo frustrating. help pls. - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I did something similar once. How have you defined the widths of the nested tables? As 33% each? If so you have 1% to account for which may make the difference. Also make sure that all your borders are set to 0 or that may force a gap. Other than that without more information I have no more ideas. Hope you solve it. John...

    actually the parent table (correct wording i hope) is 963 with 3 cells - first cell is 216, second is 569,178 in fixed widths. all borders set at zero, cell padding is 0 and cell spacing is 0...


    anything else i can tell you? thank you so much for attempting to help me sort this out. i've drawn a complete blank =)

    1) 963 pixels width is about 200 too wide for most browsers and will
    force user to scroll sideways.
    2) Can you upload and post a URL to the page?
    3) Did you import the html from Fireworks?
    4) We need a URL
    5) Do you have any colspan or rowspan tags?
    6) Can you give a URL?
    7) Will this help?: [url]http://www.vendel.info/tabletut/[/url]
    8) Please post a URL

    Finally, you might want to provide a URL...

    When you say all borders, padding and spacing are set to 0 does that include the parent table?

    Are these measurements vertical? I assume so at 963. This means that your problem may be as simple as an unused line break or even a span instead of a paragraph at the end of code. Try deleting any unnecessary line breaks below the images. If this doesn't work post a link and I'll have a look for you.

    Folks:

    Get over tables and cells with dimensions. It deludes you into thinking you
    actually control things. You do not.

    Make your tables a fixed width in pixels or a percent width, and use 100%
    cell widths as needed and leave all the rest of the dimensions out of your
    equation. The table will do what it must do regardless of your dimension
    settings.

    Check the DW FAQ table tutorials in my sig for more explanation.

    okay - I was basicly shooting for something that fit width wise into a 1024/768 resolution. However, maybe i should go smaller. I thought that most people were moving to that resolution vs. the 800x600... This is not so?

    I made 3 seperate html pages from my larger design. Then created tables in DW and cut and pasted those Html files into the tables independantly. I want to keep the border - and have the center red square expand with future editing. (which i will create by pasting the current gifs as background images in the cells of an idependant table - that way the borders wont break up on left and right and just the center can expand as needed.)

    Also while i pour through some tutorials here is a link

    [url]http://www.usedbookshop.net/test/test.htm[/url]

    I really appreciate all of the help and advise - thank you all so much

    Alerah,

    Even if you say "a link", I assume that the page you're linking to is yours?

    IMHO, you need to rethink you page completely. Not only because the
    extreme width that'll cause horizontal scroll in almost all browsers.
    It's 257Kb heavy, which is about 6 times the max any page should have.
    Theoretically, that'll take 40 seconds to download on a 56Kb modem. It
    also has 20 colspan tags and 7 rowspan tags and numerous slices and the
    contsruction WILL cause you migrane sooner or later.

    Murray,

    thank you for that link. It's a big help.

    Any insight as to why the lines show up?


    To work around this i was thinking of placing a layer - however - layers wont stay centered with a table when window is resized...

    If ound this quote on your suggested site:

    "Do not expect absolutely positioned layers to remain aligned with centered tables or page content as the browser window resizes or the resolution changes. There are Extensions available that can do this dynamically."


    IS there an extention that is free that someone could point me to that i could experiment with this? or even one to buy would be fine as well.


    Hope this isnt too fragmented.

    Regards,

    Alerah
