I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..
I don't believe that you really think fixed width sizes are better than relational (%). If your table looks pants on small browser then set a minimum width setting..
Simple, add an extra row to your table and insert a 1x1 transparent gif, setting it's width the minimum length..
<tr> <! you spacer row >.
<td><img src="spacer.gif" width="[minlength]" height ="1"></td>.
<tr> <! first "real" row of layout or data >.
<td>blah blah blah</td>.
Don't give up on flexible tables as a liquid design always wins over a static one..
Ok but when someone on something smaller than 800 x 600.
The games start to skip and it looks funky and the middle gets all small, here is a screen shot using a small screen resolution which some ppl do actually use..
Thanks for your replys..
Here is a screen shot using a 640 x 480 browser, the iPage site looks like crap becouse of the % width style, just look at it..
How does tha tlook like crap? if you tone down your font size a little I think it should be ok...
Glad you said that scoutt I was thinking exactly the same. As I said previously, if you want a minimum width the place a spacer image in to achieve that affect..
Personally, I can't see anything wrong with either screen shot, also since the advent of faster PC's and larger monitors (who get's a 15" monitor nowadays when purchasing a PC) it is unusual for web sites to be viewed at any resolution less than 800 x 600...
Ok cool, you have all convinced me, thanks to you all for your replys!..
