    Dreamweaver Question...

    I am looking to expand the left column on a page I am working on in Dreamweaver. I am hoping to have this site redesigned by January 1st. Could anyone advise me on how exactly to do this?

    Looks like you are using tables.. just set the table width a little bigger. That should do the trick. Proably should use percentages, that would make it more compatiable across resolutions.

    Tip

    If you really want to fix your <td> sizes always use invisible gifs (one pixel pictures)to make sure its croos browser compatible.
    Be very careful when using percentages as widths.
    If it dosn't add up to 100% its hard to debug in complicated table structures.
    Dreamweaver does not automatically check for 100% sum, so you might really want to check the code to make sure.

    i think if simply add some padding to the cell, you'll get what you want. try 5 or 7...

    In most sites I design i try to avoid percentages in the tables because I'm quite fussy on the layout.

    first work out how many columns you want. Work out how much width you want to give each column.

    The total should be the width you should set the whole table. This should work but to make sure I always add a transparant gif in each cell of the first row with each gif the same width as the cell it is in.

    Hope this helps
