    doctype error

    My website is appearing differently in laptop. On desktop monitor(square screen), my website is appearing correctly, but on laptop(rectangular screen), there is added a blank space too, though my page contents are loaded correctly. I think this is due wide size of laptop screen. I have added the doctype to me webpage too, but the same problem. So, please tell me what is the problem and its solution too.

    Check pls. This is my link. You will notice an extra space in the right side in the laptop if u have a wide screen laptop, but in desktop, you will not see that space.

    This isn't a "laptop vs desktop" issue. With no "width" defined for your table, it will be just the with necessary to hold the text you've put into it. It looks like you've put in that long string of "......" to make it just the size of your desktop monitor. If you added more "..." it would eventually be the size of your laptop. If you wanted the table to extend to the width of whatever size browser anyone used, you could add: width="100%" to the table tag.

    FYI: The use of tables for making layout is very bad!
