Or along those lines if you know what I mean..

Thanks..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Ok, so karinne beat me to an answer.

But here is more information about using CSS and borders:.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">.

<html>.

<head>.

<title>Untitled</title>.

</head>.

<body>.

<div style="margin: 30%; border: 1px dashed #000; width: 300;">This is the box</div>.

</body>.

</html>.

This option I would choose simply because using tables to define your layout is bad HTML.... even though I still use it sometimes! But, depending on your audience and the kind of browser they'll most likely be using, try using div's for layout with CSS...

Comment #3

It isn't "bad" html to use tables..

It is perfectly acceptable, seeing as how many browsers (especially the ones in majority use by the public) do not fully support CSS, especially positioning...

Comment #4

You're right... it's not "bad" it's just table aren't suppose to be used for that... CSS is! But... like you said: "many browsers (especially the ones in majority use by the public) do not fully support CSS, especially positioning" and that's why I still use it when my target audience will be people with low-end browsers! If I know my audience will be people with Netscape 7 and IE 6, then I stay away from it!..

Comment #5

Table was originally a method for presenting tabulated data..

This means that it was designed as a system for positioning information - when people started putting graphics on the internet, it was adopted as the method to position those too..

Keeping to the bleeding edge of technology is all well and good, but not many people will keep up with you. I, like others, use Opera instead of the two biggies. The Opera I am using (I think it's the latest, I havent checked for a week or two) is the equivalent on the web as IE 5.5 - so not quite edgy enough..

Why restrict your audience?..

Comment #6

Depending on what you're selling or advertising!?! Maybe there's stuff that don't apply to grandma'!?!? Listen... this can go on and on... I know what you mean and I'm not dissing it! I was explaining my 2 cents!..

Comment #7

Btw...

Just tested the div code you posted - loads of space above and below it when I do this:..

Yeah... well I thought he/she wanted it center in the page!.

That's why the margin: 30px.

He/she can play with the maring like:.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">.

<html>.

<head>.

<title>Untitled</title>.

<style type="text/css">.

Body {.

Margin: 0;.

}.

</style>.

</head>.

<body>.

<div style="margin: 10% 30% 0; border: 1px dashed #000; width: 300;">You can play with the margin: top(px or %) left(px or %) bottom(px or %)</div>.

</body>.

</html>..
