Doesn't look like I can post my url for inspection but I have a question:
On my main page I have two graphics at the top as such:
<TABLE BGCOLOR="#f7f7f7" ALIGN=CENTER BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH="100%">
<TR>
<TD WIDTH=49% ALIGN=LEFT VALIGN=TOP ROWSPAN=2><a href="DELETED MY SITE NAME"><img width=470 height=87 src="millenium_GIF3a.gif" BORDER="0" ALT="DELETED"></a>
</TD>
<TD WIDTH=50% ALIGN=RIGHT VALIGN=TOP ROWSPAN=2><a href="DELETED MY SITE NAME"><img width=434 height=87 src="rttableimage.gif" BORDER="0" ALT="DELETED"></a>
</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>

This table is nested in a table.
The problem is that when a user is in 800 x 600 res or if they open their favorites or any other sidebar in IE, the page then doesn't all fit in the browser. You have to scroll horizontally.

However, on all other site pages I only have the image above that's on the left. It's as if the two images are too big. I am using all % in my tables. Is it just that my graphic header is too big?

Thanks

Your graphics total width adds up to 904 pixels, that's where the scrollbar comes in.

OMG..DUH.
THanks Lisab....so, stupid question: What would the max pixels be to get it okay if the side search window is open?
