Melissa BehrensAdding Text to a Table
by on Jul 9, 2008 at 6:29:14 pm

I am building a website for the first time and I think I am doing pretty well if I say so myself. Question though: When I type in a table and the words hit the other side of the table the line breaks, obviously, but then my entire table shifts over and so when you flip from different pages you see that the page shifts over to the left. Please help! Thanks.

hello...

hmm - a few questions to get some context:

[Melissa Behrens] "When I type in a table and the words hit the other side of the table the line breaks"

do you mean when you type the table html in dreamweaver or the likes?

[Melissa Behrens] "but then my entire table shifts over and so when you flip from different pages you see that the page shifts over to the left"

w/o seeing a page/site that you are working on (_very_ helpful for context, btw), i'd have to guess that you have no width attribute for your table cell...if you don't, try adding that - like:

<td width="[X]">

where [X] is how many pixels wide you want the cell to be - then the text will still wrap but the table should hold at that pixel size...

hope that helps and feel free to post back more info and links if need be...
