~~EASY QUESTION ~~ - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I'm trying to redesign my website and am having trouble figuring out how to get the width to go across the entire screen. I got the page to adjust to the top and to the left but I don't know how to fix my width problem. It seems that when I hit the refresh button it works but not unless I hit refresh. What is going on? You can see the website at [url]http://www.dartsharks.com/test[/url] . Any suggestions would be great! Dreamweaver MX - using templates...

    Your page looks pretty good from where I am. I like the traditional L
    shape navigation, and the colour scheme works well. The page fits the
    width in IE6, Mozilla, Netscape7, and Opera7.

    A minor point. The page has 12 html errors, when checked at

    [url]http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dartsharks.com%2Ftest%2 F[/url]

    Now 12 is not very many when a page is first up. My own first page
    still has 2 errors, due to use of Flash, and the second page has 40
    error when I first put it up. So 12 errors won't take lon.

    4 of them are in the body tag. The leftmargin, topmargin, marginwidth
    and marginheight attributes don'r really exist and shouldn't be used.
    The margins can be set by applying a CSS style to the body tag. You
    have use a height attribute for a table. This attribute also doesn't
    exist under proper html code standards. It's not necessary, anyway,
    and can be safely deleted without causing problems. The images you
    have used will hold the height of the table. The rest are just alt
    attributes you have missed off images - very important for
    accessibilty. You could have that lot polished off in a couple of
    minutes, at which point w3c will give you a nice "sticker" to put on
    your page, which will look impressive for any other prospective
    customers you might have.

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="yourflashmovie.swf"
    width="000" height="000" />
    <param name="movie" value="yourmovie.swf" />
    </object>

    Will validate no problemo

    Anyone else trying it who doesnt realise - you need to replace 000 with
    the width/height :-)
