Content will not move to the top of the page reddevil
I am re-designing my site and have 3 left hand boxes (tables) plus 1 right hand box (table) with main content.
But the Content box is half way down the page, even though I have specified vertical-align:top; in the css.
Please could anybody help me to correct this?
Am I allowed to post all of the code here or can I put a link to my test page?
have you set the tables to be displayed inline? You can do this using CSS. reddevil
I inserted the inline command but it didn't have any effect on the layout - so I guess it must already be there somewhere?
Is it OK if I post a link to my test page?
Sorry, no personal links to test pages, examples etc. See Forum Charter [ webmasterworld.com]
Are you sure that the content is in the top <tr>? Sounds like it may not be. If it is, then try the W3C validators first. You'll make yourself crazy trying to fix rendering issues if there's an error in the mark-up.

What editor are you using? jollygoodfella
Do you have your tables set any sort of alignment? If you do that may overwrite the CSS you have setup. reddevil
You'll make yourself crazy trying to fix rendering issues if there's an error in the mark-up. (Laughing) That may be true but I am also driving myself crazy by trying to sort out what I think is a mark-up problem.
I am using FP2002. In Normal mode (design mode) it shows a dotted line around all the different cells. Now there is one cell which shows the dotted line on the top, left and bottom, but not the right.
I know this isn't techno-language but I guess the problem must be related to this?
I thought it was to do with colspan but again I have changed with no success.
My tables are aligned but I have changed the setting but with no success.
Did you try placing another table inside of that table? reddevil
Did you try placing another table inside of that table? Yes, there are 2 other tables nested inside 2 TDs. The TD's are set at 20% and 80% width, and the tables inside these are 100% width (of the size of the TD).
Gets a bit confusing, for me!
Have you turned on the table borders temporarily so you can see what's happening? <table border="1"> reddevil
Have you turned on the table borders temporarily so you can see what's happening? <table border="1"> tedster, nice suggestion - thanks. I tried it but it didn't help me on this occasion (although I will remember that for future).
This got me so frustrated that I have decided to recode the whole page again, being extra careful not to make any mistakes.
