    Okay i am a self teaching HTML person... I get the jist of the tables but for some reason I cannot get this one to work for me. The location i am working at is
    http://www.geocities.com/sweetcheekies2/
    I cant get the main name to center from the blue side line and the links on the left to stay within that small space on the left.
    i know i will prolly have to resize the SweetCheekies Suite Name that i can do no problem.. just need to know the table or tables to keep the rest centered or withing bounds of what i am trying to do.

    thanks
    Sweet

    If I get what you are trying to say, try adding another <TD> to the left to nudge it over. I see you are also using &nbsp 's for spacing, if you can, create a transparent small gif that you can insert to nudge things over without being visable.

    Is this the part you are trying to center after the blue border on the left?

    First I would use the <center><H1> tag (yours may work as well, but I have never used it.
    But the problem is that will center the img on the page, not relative to the border.
    I would try <img
    src="http://www.geocities.com/sweetcheekies2/names/SweetcheekiesSuite.gif">
    Using at the least a bunch of the &nbsp to nudge it in place.
    Try looking at my page here http://www.waterpondwebsites.com/howdoi/tables.html
    and be sure to View Source to see how it is done.

    Updated due to error

    Ok, this is sloppy, but works, add or remove more
    PHP:
     &nbsp
    as needed in the <TD> tag.
