    making my website cross compatiable?

    I am currently about to venture into designing my new website, I have always design them in 800*600 mode, is there anyway I can make them both 800*600 and 1024 *678 compatiable, as more people use these settings.

    I am using Dreamweaver 4, and any help or advice would be great?

    Many Thanks
    Michael Prosser

    Hi Michael

    A way of doing this is to put all your content into a table and set the width to a percentage. You can see an example of this on my personal website.

    Michael, CSS is an alternative way of getting the result you want. Have a look at http://www.glish.com/css or my homepage.

    Setting a table to 100% is a way to get your table to spawn the entire length of the browser. But if you want a navigation bar to expand with it - this is how I do it.
    I take that same 100% table (table 1) and insert a 1 row / 3 column table (table 2) in side table 1. next set table 2 to 100%. Next set the left cell in table 2 to the same width size of your left image and justify the cell to the left . The center cell of table2 would have a with of 100% .Your right cell in table 2 would be the same width as your right image and justify the right cell to the right.


    You can see this in action on top and also in the "your page heading area" of this page

    Some may not agree with this technique - so be it....
