    I'm a begining web page designer and I have recently finished designing my first site. The problem is that the site is too long in length as far as having to scroll down to view the entire page. The site is a link site with about 8 or so categories. All categories are aligned down the left hand side of the page. Now 8 categories along with 3 or 4 links underneath each category leaves for a pretty long page, too long in my opinion. Well, here's what i would like to do. I would like to split the link section of the page into two columns, I think this would shorten the site greatly and make it a little easier to navigate. can anyone help me with the code for creating columns? I am using html to design the site. thanks very much.

    Hi Steve,
    Knowing the url would be a good start.

    Hi Steve,

    I guess this is what you looking for:
    <table width="220" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    &nbsp is a non breaking space Change &nbsp with whatever you want to put in the tables data rows.

    If you want a header accross the table use the colspan Tag: Like this

    <table width="220" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
    <td colspan="2"> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> </td>
    <td> </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    Hopes it helps,

    Enjoy coding

    Regards
