HTML help

Dammit. Of all the things to need help with...

here's what I got. You can see it in action at http://iris.komta.com

The menus on the left are contained in a cell of a table. All three are also tables, width="95%". Why in the bloody hell is the third one different???

I cut and pasted the code. I don't understand why it's different, and it's pissing me off.

Anyone got an idea?

BTW, the site's not really live yet, so don't be too hard on the design

Nevermind...I said screw it and made them a fixed width.

Still, though, anyone know why it did this in the first place?

I copied the code and saved it to my desktop. When I changed the widths to 95%, the top one was shorter than the bottom 2 in mozilla, and they were all jacked up in IE. I removed the span lines, and it worked all around. Not sure if you really need span or not, I never have used it in any of my pages.

Good luck.

I wondered about that...I was using the span because it was trying to place the...hmm...why was I using span? There was a good reason, I'm sure...

Now I gotta go look.

Thanks

Span and its cousin, who's name I can't remember off the top of my head, are used for enclosing lines that will be styled with CSS, they have no effect on the structure of the page.

Strictly speaking, you shouldn't be using tables for menu bars and the like, it should be CSS.

OK, the link is www.w3schools.com .

The cousin is div.

I had been using CSS only, but I couldn't figure out how, exactly, to make the menu on the right side work. It would always move whenever someone resized the page. The way I'm doing it with the combination of tables and CSS (which I still use for formatting) the menu stay exactly where I put the damn thing, every time. I can't use absolute positioning for the menus, because they aren't always the same size.
