Got a question, hope someone can answer... What is a good iPage web host for a machinima series? Looking forward for any answer or 2. Another question... Hey all,.

I'm a novice web designer, and need a little help with tables; the webpage I'm building is viewable at.

Http://www.heavypixel.com.

..

Here's the problem; the page is cut into table cells, but when the "main body" cell expands the cells on the right don't expand properly check out (.

) for an example. The cells are "anchored" to the bottom, when they should really be anchored to the table cell above them (the bottom of the logo spinner)..

How do I do this? Feel free to check out the code; any tips are seriously appreciated..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..

Scoutt the tables with the square "pixels" on the gray background (one verticle table) and the solid black column (another)..

Arctic Dragon I looked over the code you sent (thanks, btw), but FrontPage chopped it up so different I can't really compare it against what I have. Maybe if I had better skillz....

I made the tag border=10 in the table to find the problem. The problem is the red cell gets too long, and the content of the green cells should be flush against the red cell. The green are fine, they are properly vertically aligned to the top..

I had an idea, but it didn't work. It was to make the dotcell's height exactly the same as the image it contains; repeat with the comma , cell; and make the green cells' height = 100%. It didn't work, I think because, 100% means the height of screen, not the height of the window... I'm out of ideas for today...

I've attached a picture to illustrate the problem. The space next to the highlighted words should be eliminated...

Comment #3

I guess I'm a little lost on how to eliminate that space; I've tried futzing with it to make it work, but I'm still getting the problem.....

Comment #4

Take all those <P>&amp;nbsp;</P> out. it is pulling the right side down. you will have to make some changes so you can add a cell on the right that will act the cusion for teh left cell...

Now that I've had a good night's rest, I think I've figured it out. Your merged.

Main body and red.

Cells are too complicated for a measly browser to do exactly as you wish under all variable sizes. I propose a table-in-table solution..

Just make sure both tables have.

Border="0".

Cellpadding="0".

Cellspacing="0".

And all the valign's set properly.

And you should be fine. If you need help with the code - post back here and we'll whip up some..

You should be able to make the.

Main body.

Cell as long as you want...

Postitlord, the new table can't go there as that is not the problem area. it has to go in the spinnerlogo cell as that is whats getting stretched. he needs to add a new cell below where you proposed a new table. that way it gets spaced out instead of the spinnerlogo cell..

Or add the whole left side in a table in that cell..

Comment #7

Here's the table-in-table. It fixes the problem I described. I tested it in IE 5.5 and NS 4.73, on Win98. I left the borders equal to 1 to highlight the design concept..

In an unrelated problem, Netscape could not load mrHappyPants.gif at all. No clue why. Perhaps 10,000 pixels is too long for it..

Enjoy!..
