Hi there,

I am experiencing a rather bizarre page sizing issue, and I THINK it has to do with the inline graphics, but I can find no rhyme or reason to them. Anyone who knows the rhyme or reason I extend much thanks in advance!

Browse through the pages at: www.triggerfishwaterpolo.ca/new.asp. You'll notice some resize, some do not. I have eliminated the table structures as the cause, as when I remove the inline graphics they all resize perfectly. However, I can not seem to figure out what about the inline graphics cause the issue, as you will notice that some pages have plenty of inline graphics and resize just fine....

Thanks kindly,
Drew

is there any chance you can supply specific url's? one for a page that is working correctlya nd one that's not working properly?

Here are two pages with the same table set:
http://www.triggerfishwaterpolo.ca/new.asp?Page=28 resizes correctly
http://www.triggerfishwaterpolo.ca/new.asp?Page=37 does not

Thanks..

They look pretty much the same to me, what do you mean by 'resize'?

This issue is occurring in Internet Explorer only based on those two test pages. At any rate, I glanced at the source code which doesn't contain a doctype (the browser is rendering in quirks mode), is using lots of deprecated code, and is based on a messy table layout. The code is really such a mess...

[...] a messy table layout. The code is really such a mess...
Actually the code is pretty well formatted and clearly recognizable - up until the point where either some server side script or editor included some code. But generally that's exactly the way I'd have done it before I knew CSS based layout.
This, however, shouldn't deny that the use of tables for layout is actually bad practice and should be changed to CSS based layout.

And as Arbitrator mentioned a DOCTYPE (http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp) could fix some problems...

Heh, table layouts, deprecated code, and spacer GIFs are messy no matter how you look at it IMO. It's true that if I turn word-wrap off the source looks quite organized from an aesthetic point of view but from a proper semantics view, it's a total mess. From a comprehension view, it's a mess.

Anyway, /rant off.

With all due respect, not being a professional coder (as you can see, it's a non-profit site), I'm really not too concerned of whether the code is perfect aesthetically.. the code has been generated in Dreamweaver, and yes, ASP drops in the content from the content engine.

HOWEVER - none of these comments address the REAL issue, which is why an inline graphic would cause the table to stop resizing. That's BIZARRE, if you ask me.. anyone have some thoughts on the issue at hand? :cool:

Thanks in advance..
