    Unhappy Small but annoying problems...

    Hi,
    I've recently been working on a page design but have come across a few problems that I am hoping you can help me solve. My problem is that the right hand navigation bar of my site stretches away from the edge of the page as the window is made bigger. This is hard to describe so please visit here to see what I mean. Its only becomes a problem at higher resolutions, and when browsed in opera its not a problem at all
    I think there must be a small bug in my code, yet I've spent hours tweaking and still no luck.

    So if anyone can make any amendments please let me know.. I'm also open to any comments about the design - Thanks in advance

    Cheers,
    Henry

    I just got rid of the width for your center, content column and it seemed to work. Give it a try:

    Change this:
    Code:
    <td valign="top" width="509" bgcolor="#000066">& nbsp;</TD>
    To this:
    Code:
    <td valign="top" bgcolor="#000066">& nbsp;</TD>
    The sidebars will always remain 130pxs in width, but the center column will stretch with the window.

    Your code is a bit messy and it could easily be simplified -- you've got a lot of pointless nested tables that aren't serving any purpose.
