I am trying to create a web site for my mom and learn html at the same time. Don't know much, but I am learning. I have tried to create a "border" for the pages I am doing for her using tables. Using IE5, if you visit http://hometown.aol.com/buzzyld/template.html
, you can see this "border" that I have tried to create. Using Communicator 4.6 you will only see the corners of the "border" which are actually images unlike the rest of the "border". Well, I figured out that navigator wasn't processing the rest of the "border" because I needed to put some content into those specific cells. So, I put a transparant image in each of the cells, and now the "border" shows up both in Navigator and IE. However, you can see that it is not what I had intended the "border" to look like. It's pretty messed up actually. You can see this at http://hometown.aol.com/buzzyld/template2.html
Now when you look at the first url in IE5, that's what I was hoping to accomplish in the "border". It comes out perfectly with the sides matching the width of the corners and everyting flowing together nicely. My question I guess, is can anybody see why I am having problems with the "border" looking like I had originally planned? Why is it that I can't get it to display correctly as you can see in the second url? Basically, I want template2.html to look like template.html does in IE5 and I want it to look that way both in Navigator and IE. Is there something wrong with my code or is there a step I've forgotten? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
