    you want to see how that table is set up while in design view,

    Set the CellSpacing and Cellpadding to large values while you are working
    with it,

    like anywhere between 5 and 20

    | I have had several people comment that my site
    | is just too wide and they have to scroll left and right
    | to see the whole page.
    |
    | My question is how do I avoid doing this in the future
    | when building HTML pages ???
    |
    | Also, can I EASILY resize the pages that I've already
    | built so that they easily fit into any browser or screen
    | regardless of the screen size ??? If so , How ???

    When designing a page, re-size your main DW (design) window to about 750
    x 450 pixels, That'll give you a good idea about what most users will
    see (until they scroll - if that's needed).

    Then decide whether to have a fixed sized page - which should be about
    750-770 px wide - or a page that fits all window widths. If the latter,
    use 100% table width and/or see the tutorial about flexible pages posted
    by Nadia.

    To change an existing page "easily" or not depends on your own skills.
    But the above advice should be enough to get you going.
