    Question Alignment Problems!

    Hello all,

    I'm having some alignment problems and I have run out of ideas. Dreamweaver MX 2004 is my development tool.

    The page in question (and other pages with the same problem) is:

    http://www.assumption.edu/nhtml/grad...quirements.php

    In Safari, the page looks perfect, but in IE and Netscrape, my tables on the left are stretching out and are being broken.

    Things I've done:
    1.) The top of the left menu is just an image insertion, but the sides of the menu are background images for those table cells.

    2.) I've gone in and set all of the table alignments to "top."

    3.) I've removed all unnecessary carriage returns.

    4.) Used CSS for all fonts, but not table building. They are in standard html.

    I would appreciate any insight into this issue.

    thanks!

    Ron

    I had this issue with one of my designs, I can't remember what it was but I think it has something to do with the table your content is in, if there is less content, the menu doesn't split right? So might be something to do with the field next to it

    yes, you're right.. if there is less content on the right, the menu doesn't bust into pieces. usually that's solved by setting the table alignments to "top" or so I thought.

    Hi everyone,

    I got it this morning! It's fixed.. I guess I just needed to get away from it for a day to figure it out.

    Basically, and I'm sure you all know this.. when you create a page in Adobe Photshop, then export it as HTML, it creates all the tables for you. For whatever reason, it just didnt' work out this time.. it looked fine in DW, and then when I put it on the web the menu was busted apart. So this morning I deleted all of the corresponding graphics in that area, merged all of the cells together, then added a new table within a table with the right layout.. set all of the table alignments to "top," and tried it. It worked!

    Yes and no, I redid the entire layout, with this layout its basically easier to edit, but go ahead and use Ron's idea if you want less complication.
