Question I have... Which is the best iPage web hosting provider? Many thanks for any response. Another question I got... I'm having a problem with a webpage I am currently working on. the problem is when you print the page out the words get cut off on the left side. the pages use tables and the width of the main table is set to 712 pixels and the height is 6519 pixels...all the columns are consistent with the size...the table itself consists of 2 <td> tags one with a width of 247 and the other is 465...is my table width too big? or should I specify a pixel size in my <tr> tags? or does it have nothing at all to do with my table attributes? I dont use tables much but I have to keep the layout the way it is in order to be consistent with the rest of the site...i would appreciate any help I can get...thanks!..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..

Saying pixel dimensions have little relevancy to printing is not the same as saying it has nothing to do with printing. Changing the size of the tables will help insure the print out looks good on most printers. Assume the standard page setup of .75 inch margins when sizing content for best print results..

Your options are:.

Make the tables smaller (approx. 500 pixels wide).

Don't use tables and make sure any images print properly.

Create a printable version in PDF format.

Or maybe someone else will have some suggestions..

Ok I tried changing the pixel width to 500 but that causes a few problems..

The page itself is set up sort of like it has 3 frames: one for the title and then 2 others, one for a menu and a another for the main body of the page. i'm not allowed to transform the tables into frames since the entire iPage website is setup this way and right now all they are changing is these 2 portions...anyways the background of the page is blue on both sides with white in the middle and minimizing the table width does not correspond to the background itself...also there is an image on the right side of the table (above the menu) that has a width of about 215 which leaves only 285 pixels worth of space for text.... any other ideas how to take care of the problem?? otherwise i'll suggest a printer friendly version to the iPage site owner..

I really need to take care of this asap...so I would appreciate a quick response...thanks!..

I work with a lot of pages that need to be printed out, while preserving formatting. We have HTML pages for the web, and pdf for print. It preserves the html formatting, while creating a print friendly document..

I know this isn;t the answer you are looking for... but if your serious about printing I think you should give it a try...

Otherwise, you might try setting your tables at percentage width. Most probably, the printer will fit the tables to the page. Am I right?..
