    Marquee, align... what is this 1998?

    margin-left:-10px; -- are you adding position:relative so it depth sorts over/out of the parent? NOT that such tricks usually work inside a table.

    "dot1 st11 td4" -- and what am I always saying about vague and ultimately useless/meaningless classnames on elements?

    We'd have to see an actual page to say for sure, but it looks like you might be using tables on non-tabular data, attempting to use tables in a manner that naturally doesn't work across browsers, and using decade out of date coding methodologies.

    i got it from net
    i cant use javascript for marquee as i get the data frm database
    is there any other way??

    reg the use of tables
    just using divs & other elements & CSS other than table i was not able to design the layout effectively as needed

    so had used table & css

    Well again, it's hard to say how what you are attempting to do should even be done without seeing the actual page -- snippets are useless; like instructing Doc Holiday in doing brain-surgury over a time phone to 1876.

    Not sure what getting the data from a database has to do wtih a marquee; though it sounds like the type of animooted nonsense that might not belong on a website in the first place; though there are plenty of ways to handle such things without the browser specific and decade out of date markup.

    I mean, I could be wrong, I'm guessing wildly here -- but if you 'have' to use tables for layout and 'have' to use marquee for an effect, it's usually the case you're designing a bad site. Could be worse though, you could have posted the bgsound attribute pointing at a .mid file.

    its difficult to understand as to wht u want to say
    as i have already told that just using css & div i am finding it difficult to design a site

    secondly reg the marquee effect
    i need to display some data from the backend databse on to the page & shld have a scroll effect
    if u have any better options it wuld be helpful

    i have checked the net again and its not 1998 history

    the code is
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    string str = "marque text";
    string text = "<MARQUEE>" + str + "</MARQUEE>";
    Literal1.Text = text;
    }

    whtever way i us ei need to use MARQUEE
