I have unofficially launched my website via ftp...however, I have run into a slight problem: I have a 13" monitor on my system - when I edit the pages, etc...everything looks fine (i.e. - everything is aligned properly, etc) - however, when I viewed the sight from my work location (I have a 15" monitor at work) the page was a bit out of alignment (when viewed in the maximized mode - but if viewed in the minimized mode it looked OK). Is there a way to set it so that regardless of what size monitor the site is viewed on it will always appear to be properly aligned.

Are you using tables?  If so, in your TABLE tag, state the size you want it to be.


Wrap a table element around the entire page...

I am not using tables...so are you saying to try that anyway? what size should I make the table (640)? - I'll try that and check it out at work Monday evening and let you know

640 is the cfommon width of most screens... you could do 600-800 and still get most screens...
