    I have a strange anomaly. I am redoing a web site and have it as a subdirectory
    of my site until it is finished.

    Could you please view the following pages:

    [the problem with this page is that on some monitors, there is a large blank
    space at the bottom of the page: This "view" is NOT the same on every monitor
    (computer). I have checked the code and don't see any problem, also I don't see
    the blank space. Can anyone help me resolve this?

    The problem on this page is that in the left navbar, the 6th item shows
    Educational SupportFinancial and does NOT have a break between the words
    "Support" and "Financial." The links should read:
    Educational Support
    Financial Support

    Also, these anomalies are not consistent with the rest of the web site I am
    designing.
    Please Help, I'm at wits end with this!!!

    I have noticed in the last year "strange" things going on with browsers
    [Firefox and IE] and I never seemed to have as many problems in the past as I
    am having lately.
    Does using Dreamweaver MX 2004 have anything to do with it? Don't have the $$$
    to upgrade at this time.

    Get rid of the table height.

    <td height="200" colspan="2" valign="top" scope="row">

    Get rid of all the td heights, too.

     


    <a href="education.html">Educational<span
    class="style4">|</span>Support </a><a href="finance.html">Financial
    Support<br>


    To be consistent with the rest of your menu items, but a <br> before
    the second link, the one to Financial Support.



    And what the heck is the purpose of this span?

    <span class="style4">|</span>

    where

    ..style4 {color: #FFFFFF}



     


    Has nothing to do with DW. Has everything to do with what's in the
    code.

    Thanks for your advice. YES!! Clearing the <table> height tag [4944] solved
    that problem.
    However . . . After I fixed the Left NavBar code, In Firefox it views
    correctly with each link on its own line [IE. "Meet Our Officers" "Financial
    Support" "Educational Support" etc.] BUT in IE the words rap and I don't want
    to use "norap" in the code for this column [left NavBar] because it widens the
    whole page beyond the size I want. I want the links to be on their own
    individual lines. Can you help me again on this?

    Ellen, I read these newsgroups via NNTP and not the web forum. Can
    you post the link to your page again, please?

    I have a hunch what you're trying to achieve won't be possible, or at
    least not consistently. What happens when someone resizes their text?

    Win,

    I found out the problem. As I said, I created a new NavBar [just typed each
    line, created the links to them, put them each on their individual lines and
    did have to add a <norap> tag to the column. And TaTa, each page displays
    correctly.

    Here's the link:
    http://www.bowzerbird.com/sorop/members.html

    Try it out in Firefox and IE and you will see that that left NavBar displays
    correctly with each link on its own line. Click through the site and you'll see
    that each page [NavBar] lines up correctly.

    That's an interesting "dilemma." What if someone resizes the page? I do it all
    the time and the page/graphics don't always resize proportionally. So, then
    what do you do?? LOL

    But, again, thank you sooo much for the correction on the height tag.
    Again, thanks,

    Ellen

    Yep, good catch - the links now all have a <br> tag between them,
    forcing each to a new line.

    And the nowrap on the td keeps the text all on one line regardless of
    how much someone might resize.

    Good for you for working through it!
