Dreamweaver & tables

Dreamweaver & tables


I have just started using Dreamweaver CS 5.5 to create a new website (have in the past used FrontPage 2003) and I am experiencing the following problem:

I am using a table to contain all my information and within that table I have also inserted another smaller table to conain a secondary menu however whenever I go between this page with the secondary menu and other pages it is noticable that the page with the secondary menu moves to the left approximately 1cm and I am at a loss as to why it does this.

You can view what I mean by using these two links:

a. index.html

b. library.html

There are other pages that are experiencing the same problem but the above 2 will give you an indication of the problem.

Thanks in anticipation:

the reason for the page shift is the length of the pages.

the index page has enough content to force the browser to use scroll bars on the side, the library page does not force the scroll bars.

as the browser adds or removes the scroll bars, the page is shifted to accommodate them.

see the following article for details on fixing this:

firstly thanks for taking the time to both read my post and reply it is greatly appreciated.

Concentrating so hard on the site I did not even think to look at the scroll bar being introduced to the right - how embarrasing !

Again many thanks,

Kind regard

No worries. the scroll bar page shift is a common occurrence, and often over looked.
