I am creating a page with a green left side border, but do not know how to solve the problem of different resolutions.
The size of only my border is: width 130 pixels and height 10 pixels. The entire background image (including the white
part) is 1280 pixels wide.
When I use a table and make the left hand cell 25% of the 100% table (see below), my text starts just next to the green border, when I view it with a resolution of 640 by 480.
However, when viewing a resolution of 800 by 600 my text moves to the right. And with 1024 by 768 it is almost in the
center of the screen.
Is there some way to make a page look good in all three the resolutions? Or in other words: what should be the width of my green border?
<TABLE BORDER=0 WIDTH=100%>
<TD ALIGN=LEFT VALIGN=TOP WIDTH=25%> (my green border)
