Hello you all fine peoeple,

 you have probably heard this question a zillion times,
 but hear I go again (please excuse me):

 I have created a page using dreamweaver and I have inserted a textfield, two buttons and a checkbox all
located inside a table.

 When I preview it with iexplorer everything appears ok
 apart from the table containing the above form objects
which appears a lot wider. I have got another table in
the page but that appearrs fine. When previewed in netscape that textfields,buttons and the checkbox don't
appear at all, but the size is correct!

 thanks in advance,

 anemos

Probably they don't appear because you did not insert <FORM> </FORM> tags.  These must go around all your fields and other form information.

Safest bet is just after and before the opening and closing <BODY> tags.

Also.. text fields tend to look different in different browsers.. you can't do much about that.. just make sure that you can live with the result in either browser.  Play with it until it's OK.  You can obviously specificy how wide you want your text field, but again that can vary.  

There may be even a way using CSS to regulate more clearly the size of the field but I haven't tried that and am not sure about it.

Good luck!

CSS is cascading style sheets...  you can be very precise and specify fonts in pixel size, for example.. you can control objects much more..

However, I'm not sure about using CSS with fields.  If you wanna play with it though.. it's in your Text Menu.. under CSS styles.

Good luck and Thanks!
