Hello,

I am creating a template for my children, and got some good advice in the past (among others by martike, jbrugman, and SteveWood). This is a follow-up question. I have also included the old page.

Could you be more precise about what you don't like about your old page? It looks fine to me, and looks pretty much the same as your "desired" page layout.

I'm not sure how you can get the text all in line and be even the way you want....but as far as the text goes just make sure you stay within the basic font area such as Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New, etc. Most people have these basic fonts on their system, they come standard.

Why not use frames? Here is what it could be. I will build the code.

Thanks for all you comments (especially martike for reacting again).
To answer alamo's question: You might notice that the images are not exactly in the center of the surrounding text. The layout looks rather amateurish.

If you answer the question and include the code I will give you
the points ndnet.

I took another look at the old one. I could make it work without frames. I'll try that first, because frames load slower and require much more work.

I have image one perfect. Number two is being tricky, but still okay.

You will need a spacre image (spacer.gif) for image two. How to do it:

1. Open up Windows Paint
2. Press Ctrl-E to bring up attributes, and set height and width both to 1.
3. Press Ctrl-Page Down to zoom in.
4. Double click on any color in the toolbox.
5. Make the three values (Hue, Sat, Lum) to the background color. (Your current values, in order, are 53, 240, 216.
6. Fill the area and save the file as spacer.bmp
7. Close paint.
8. Convert to a gif. This is easy with FrontPage. (Just create a new page, load the image, and save. It will convert to a gif.
9. Put it in the same directory as the HTML file.

The first image was fixed by eliminating the table cell padding; the second, the spacer. The text doesn't really matter.

Could I use the template in my HTML editor (Beta available soon) I will give you a registered copy for free and will give you credit for the design.

I would appriciate it greatly.
If you have trouble making a spacer.gif, place a comment here and I'll put it on my site and post the address here.

You have put a lot of work into it! Thanks a lot ndnet, a great
looking page.
Of course you may use the template, and you do not have to give
me any credit for the design. Though I am very interested in your
editor.

My e-mail address is wimkerk@usa.net

Thanks again
