im using tables on my webpage as an alternative to frames.
im coding my page in html.
on one of my pages the table is not lining up the way it's supposed to, but the rest work fine.
the html for the tables is the same on all of my pages, it's just been copied from one page to the next.
i've tried changing the table sizes but nothings happening.

the page that doesn't work is

www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Sector/6698/services/cpp_help.html

the page where ive been copying and pasting the tables from is
www.geocities.com/SIliconValley/Sector/6698/dcpc-2.html

the javascript is the same on both, but sometimes it stuffs up too.

Can anyone tell me why one page works an why the other doesn't?
What can I do to fix it?

Well, you are using percentages for the tables, and I assume that you want the green image to the left to not have text running over it, so in order to assure that, you need to use a pixel width for the left table cell (this one would be around 150 or so ?? just a guess -- check the ending pixel coordinate of the green and subtract space for table and margin white space) and width=100% for the right table cell.

Also if there is a line in a table cell with no breakable spaces which exceeds the value specified or allotted it will stretch the table cell and even the table until it can fit it.  I think this might be the case for your document.

Hopefully this will help you.
If you were looking for working code, I don't think 20 points is enough for reworking the entire page to get it working completely right.  It would take a lot of work to do so, and usually would be more like 100 points.
