Hi, I cannot, after trying for so long, get webpages to fit any resolution. I have read other topics on this on here and have tried to make it work - but I cant.... I have been using tables in Frontpage 2000, can somebody please help me....or point me in the direction of a step by step guide from scratch, thanks, Gemma.

Welcome to Webmaster World, Jobepage!

When you say you can't make it fit any resolution, do you mean it's too big or too small?

What the intention was, was to make what I think you call a 'liquid' site. I think I've sort of managed to do it now, the next prob is.... when I try to type in the table(s) the side of the table just pushes out and keeps going when the text gets to it, even if I press enter to go down a row, it goes down two rows leave a big gap between lines of text which would obviously look silly - aaarrrrgggghhhh! (Thanks)

Use percentages not fixed widths in the tables. You may make the header 100% for example. But having a liquid design typically causes too much havoc on the page being built. If you have a high resolution you'll see things like paragraphs spread too wide unless they are graphics, but then you loose the keyword relevancy.

You may want to use a bit of both... use the header as 100%, then in the Body tag use topmargin=0 leftmargin=0 rightmargin=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 to clear out the natural spacing... then use a fixed width for the body.

Good luck.
