What's wrong here? Using PUBLISHER 2000


We created this using a resolution of 800x600x32, and used both FP 2000 and later Publisher 2000 from which last published.

What needs to be modified (and how) to cause the viewable page in either IE or Netscape to be full breadth of page versus current narrow result?  Searching the Help files and MS KB, nothing found about this specifically that has changed the format of the page.

I appreciate your COMMENTS vs. answers.
BTW, is it proper web-type protocol to note "best viewed at 800x600" somewhere on the web site?

  Part of the reason is that even though you made it in publisher at 800x600 you still need to tell the tables it produces to be a width of 800.
I suggest going into the HTML code and putting this in:
    <table border=2 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=800>

you already have the table border=2 and such at the very top of your html page but just add the width=800 at the end of it.

  As for the properness of saying "best viewed at 800x600" it depends on you.  Statistically a majority of the people are running at 800x600 resolution but that majority might not be your audience so you might want to tell them to use 800x600, it's totally a taste thing, so if you like it and your client likes it then hey, go for it.

Hope this helps!

Use percentages in your tables.

Don't use width=%100 because this will produce horizontal scroll bars to appear.  I usually use width=%95

If you use percentages in your pages, then it won't matter what the resolution is, your table will take up that percentage of the window.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your input.  Unfortunately, none actually produced the results we wanted.  We did, though, have some failure of success on our test site by changing some HTML codes.  None of these specifics, though, did what we wanted.

This test site, though did achieve our goal with the various modifications we've made.

This is the test site link, and with our IE browser, we've gotten it to display fully on our 800x600 page, have the background fixed vs. scrolling and all centered to view.

Thanks for your input, though.



Now to see if we can easily make these same modifications with equal results in our main site.

I meant "some measure of success vs. failure".  With that, will award points on the piece that most helped shortly.

Thank you.

I learned from this thread and thank you, although none of the specifics actually created the final fix, appreciated the input nonetheless.  I would have liked to split these points between you but see no way to do this.
