How do I make a menu for Home page, link page etc. on the left side. I tried making a table on the left side but I couldn't write anything next to the table just above and under it.

You will need to nest the table like this:

<table>
   <tr>
      <td>
         <table>
            <tr>
               <td>
               all your menustuff
               </td>
            </tr>
         <table>
      </td>
      <td>
         the rest of the content goes here
      </td>
    </tr>
</table>

or you can use CSS to position DIV's...one with your menu, and one with your content...


i'm particularily fond of this one.

just tweaking cd's code to show what all can be done . . .


<table>
  <tr>
     <td width="" style="background-color:  ;width:  ;color:  ;" valign="top">
        <table>
           <tr>
              <td>
              all your menustuff
              </td>
           </tr>
        <table>
     </td>
     <td width="" style="background-color:  ;width:  ;color:  ;" valign="top">
        the rest of the content goes here
     </td>
   </tr>
</table>



what you can also be done through rowspans, but i think mostly nesting tables(as cd said) is a better idea.

i think you should go through tutorials about stylesheets, theyll help you quite a lot.

yes, maybe they'll show you that table based layout is on the way out, and CSS layout is where it's at now...  :-)

Or another easy way to keep the menus on the left is with frames:

<frameset cols="20%,80%">
<frame src="menu.htm">
<frame src="mainpage.htm" name="right">
</frameset>

I just wanted a little advice...so I signed up, even when I don't know what this is! Can someone tell me what it is?
