    Hi there,

    Unfortunetely, there is no script that will render the site in the browser so it will look the same at different resolutions.
    Many developers now are using %s insted of pixels in their tables so the site will stretch according to browser window.
    I advice you to go with one resolution and stick to it - you may want to create your pages for 800x600 - most common used now on the 'Net.
    About the fixing tables -> please point out the tables you'd like to fix...

    Yours,

    Ok well the table that is for the Nav bar. the gray area. weel that stretces all the way to the right and meeses up everything! was on netscape 4.0 so it is crappy still!!!

    It is easy. Use standard HTML and make sure that it is well formed by validating the HTML. Homesite has a built-in validator and there are some online. For all its scripting capabilities, CSS support and limited support of the DOM, IE doesn't care about well-formed documents (except for IE5.0 for Mac).

    Here are some resources for you to figure out how to make well-formed HTML documents.
    www.w3c.org www.htmlhelp.com www.webstandards.org

    Also here is one big tip. Don't use any Microsoft Program to edit your webpages if you want compatibility amoung the major browsers.

    If your going to design websites you need to install Navigator on your machine so you can preview your work. If you don't want to take the time downloading it go buy a copy of MaximumPC magazine (make sure its not the "Naked" issue) and load Netscape off of their CD which always includes the latest versions of both Netscape and IE and has Opera on it about 4 times a year.

    One little prob. with your site that I thought I'd mention. I can't read a lot of the text. It's black on dark background. . .
