i am working on my first site (so please excuse my amateur habits) and have come across an aligning/positioning issue that i cant get over my myself!

I am trying to integrate an Aweber Form of which i have customized to fit my background (in order to look more appealing.)

When i align it with my background in dreamweaver and preview in cometbird, everything looks fine. HOWEVER once uploaded the form doesnt align to the background, (using same browser!)

In desperate need of ANY advice, Please see this link (http://www.amillioninone.com/Savvysteal/index45.html)for current page with problems. (white boxes are obviously meant to align with other boxes...

Cheers

the markup is invalid:

try to fix it first.
few problem, the id attribute must be uniq in a page and the way you write comments look good but is confusing for parsers, :).

best regards

Thanks very much for the help!
I didn't know a lot of that stuff, but i have learned it now, and removed 28 errors! but still left with ONE that i cant seem to resolve.

The ""Line 264, Column 29: there is no attribute "height"""
I am unsure of how to specify the table attributes?

I think (could be wrong) that width & height (at least in this instance) are no longer supported formats. They are able to be done via CSS though. You can do this multiple ways. You can use local style tags in the header:
<style>
.table_class{ blah}
</style>
(then set your table to a class- you could also use #table_name and then set an ID for your table)

You can do the same as above but on a seperate style sheet and then use <link> to reference it:

<link href="css name and path" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

you also can do inline styling (I usually do not do this and do not know if it is frowned upon- personally I like to have all my CSS external)

<table style=" height: 100px; width 100px;">

PASSED WITHOUT ERRORS!

The only bad news is, the original problem wasnt fixed! My Aweber form doesnt align to my background image once uploaded, AND it isnt selectable/writable!

I am in dire need of ANY suggestions!
Thanks very much!
