Need help Redoing Client Website

I hope you can help me! I am re-doing a client website they want it to fit into the browser window - it looks good on most browsers but the CEO of the company uses AOL - there is my major problem. How do I do the html code (I use dreamweaver) so that the table I have developed the website in - will fill the computer screen of all browsers including aol?

They do not want to have to scroll but they also do not want to have extra background?

I am not a programmer so I need a code I can cut and paste or at least simple enough to figure out.

I am lost on this one...

What you're looking to accomplish is a fluid layout [google.com]. There has been a lot of discussion about this topic here. the last link will search WW via Google.

There's costs and benefits to fluid design. Depending on your client's site and site structure it may be more trouble/less reliable than it's worth.

The most reliable way to accomplish a fluid layout is via CSS. There is a library thread on fluid CSS layouts [webmasterworld.com] in the CSS forum that you may want to check out.
