I designed my navigation and titles in photoshop and then used the splicer to seperate it up. Then I used the "save for web" function to save the images and create the basic web page.

The problem is in dreamweaver with I put anything in the main content cell the navigation images split apart because the content I put in expands the table. Does anyone know how to get around this?

Hey, It's a little tough to know what you are speaking about... but here are a few ideas.

Are the images and the copy in the same cell? Seperate them probably.
Does the table have a fixed pixel width to it?
set one

you can stickymail me a link to the page you are talking about if you like, then I'll take a look.

Harvs: This might be a little late for you, but what about using layers? You can reposition layers anywhere. That would prevent your table from expanding.

layers sounds like a good solution. You might also try a seperate fixed width table for the content nested in a cell of the other table.

Hey Harvs,

When you export to web, select 'images and html'. Then open that PS created page in DW and select the whole table of your menu, copy and paste it into your new page.
