Table control and Screen Width

I have a table that I would like to take up only the screen width if the screen size is set below 800x600. If it is 800x600 or greater I only want it to take up 800 pixels.

For example, If I view it with a screen size of 1024x768 I only want it to take up 800 pixels.

Is this possible and if so, how???

I don't think that it is possible in plain HTML.  You can use the percentage to fill the screen or the absolute to define the size.  You might be able to do it with a script that checks the display properties and uses if-then to define the tables.

The following code works in NS3, NS4 and IE4. I haven't tested other browsers:

<BODY>
<img src="clear.gif" name="scrwid" width=100% height=1>
<script>
maxwidth=Math.min(document.images[0].width,800);
document.write("<table width="+maxwidth+">");
</script>
<noscript>
<table width=100%>
</noscript>
<tr>
<td>
some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text
</td>
</tr>
</table>


</BODY>

It even works when you resize the window (if you reload the document in Netscape).

Great...

Can you do more for me?

Take a look at this page:
http://library.advanced.org/10867/search.shtml

Here is where I'm test implementing this. If you look at the page in IE, then take a look at it in NS you will see a major difference...

Is there any way to make them look more alike?

For Netscape it is not enough to state cellspacing=0. You need to add border=0. This will solve your problem.

One more thing,

How can I get rid of the grey line across the screen in NS4?

Can I just make an image thats gray?

Your problem appears to be that the title bar and the content are seperate tables. Do the following:

                  <img src="clear.gif" name="scrwid" width=100% height=1 BORDER=0 ALT="">
                  <script>
                        maxwidth=Math.min(document.images[0].width,800);
                        document.write("<table width="+maxwidth+" BGCOLOR=BLACK BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0>");
                  </script>
                  <tr><td>
                  <TABLE WIDTH="100%" BGCOLOR="#000000" BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=1>
                 <TR><TD><A HREF="cgi-bin/stats/ax.cgi?http://home1.gte.net/mvmmvm/bor/"><IMG SRC="media/navbar/bor.gif" WIDTH=23 HEIGHT=24 ALT="" BORDER=0 ALIGN="RIGHT"></A>
<A HREF="home.shtml"><IMG SRC="media/navbar/home.gif" WIDTH=79 HEIGHT=21 ALT="" BORDER=0></A>
<A HREF="intro/index.shtml"><IMG SRC="media/navbar/intro.gif" WIDTH=48 HEIGHT=21 ALT="" BORDER="0"></A>
<A HREF="spill/index.shtml"><IMG SRC="media/navbar/spill.gif" WIDTH=67 HEIGHT=21 ALT="" BORDER="0"></A>
<A HREF="cleanup/index.shtml"><IMG SRC="media/navbar/cleanup.gif" WIDTH=89 HEIGHT=21 ALT="" BORDER="0"></A>
<A HREF="results/index.shtml"><IMG SRC="media/navbar/results.gif" WIDTH=86 HEIGHT=21 ALT="" BORDER="0"></A>
</TD></TR>
                  </TABLE>
      <TABLE WIDTH="100%" BGCOLOR=BLACK BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=10 CELLSPACING=1>
             <TR>
               <TD WIDTH=120 VALIGN="top" BGCOLOR="SILVER">
   
etc..

i.e. have one table containing the two. This seems to solve the problem.
