    website layout

    Hey peeps.

    I need some help with my website layout. The layout was ok, or should i say the way i think i wanted it, but as soon as i put in my navigation bar in the layout, the rest of the page layout goes all out of sync. Can someone please advise me on where i am going wrong.

    right... i can see what it is. ive highlighted the outlines of the tables.



    see how there is a table that pushes out beyond the width of the rest of everything? i would say that is what is making everything else go out of sync.

    hope you can fix it

    Here is a fix:
    Do not use tables for layout

    Okay, you can use tables, you just need to know how to use them properly.


    Make a table that stretches to 100% of the window. Then (if you are using a fixed tables) make another table that is fixed to the largest size, e.g. 758 pixels. That will hold all your content in place, this works across all browsers.

    Then inside that place your tables, and everything will work hunky dorey.


    Have fun!
