making the page fit the screen - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

When the page is finally uploaded onto the web how do I ensure it fits all the various size screens that may see it. I have created a nice site which looks perfect on my 17" screen but on a friends much larger screen it looks small and on one side of the screen....

    I have created a nice site which looks perfect on my 17" screen but on a
    friends much larger screen it looks small and on one side of the screen.

    You have three choices -

    1. Left aligned and fixed width
    2. Center aligned and fixed width
    3. Flexible width

    Personally, I think #2 is the best choice.

    To make a page flexible, you need to build it within containers that are
    sized in percents rather than in actual pixels. Those containers could be
    tables, or divs.

    I suggest you take a look at the many sample layouts offered in DW for such
    pages to understand how they might be built.

    The site is actually created in Flash does this cause other problems when trying to make it stretch.

    What does someone who doesn't have Flash installed see when they come to
    your site? Nothing.
    What does a search engine spider see when they come to your site? Nothing.
    What does someone who uses a screen assistive device see when they come to
    your site? Nothing.

    Was this your intention?

    One problem at a time please, first I need to deal with the lack of stretching problem then I'll address your concerns, but if you have the ready answer to those please let me know.

    Your page is a non-doctype, HTML shell around one big Flash element -

    AC_FL_RunContent(
    'codebase','http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0','width','1000','heigh t','600','id','index','align','middle','src','inde x','quality','high','bgcolor','#ffffff','name','in dex','allowscriptaccess','sameDomain','pluginspage ','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','movie','index'
    ); //end AC code

    Note that there are dimensions specified in the Flash markup above. To make
    the page flexible you would need to change that in the Flash. This question
    would be best posed on a Flash forum, as HTML cannot do what you want.
