Hi,
  i am new to html and i am facing a problem.

I have put check boxes or radio buttons in tables.

But how do i put it in a way , it is at the exact point that i want to

If i use align-right, its to right, if left, too left and so one

 Education :
                 |The table should be at this point


This is my code:
<table border="0">
<tr>
<td >
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Pri" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">Primary School<br>
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Sec" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">Secondary School<br>
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Uni" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">University
</td>
</tr>
</table>



Thanks

Hi Jasbir21,

Put the table in a layer and then you can position it wherever you want:

<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_reloadPage(init) {  //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
  if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
  else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();
}
MM_reloadPage(true);
//-->
</script>
</head>

<body>
<div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; width:200px; height:115px; z-index:1; left: 40; top: 80;">
<table border="0">
<tr>
<td >
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Pri" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">Primary School<br>
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Sec" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">Secondary School<br>
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Uni" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">University
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Or this:
<table border="0" style="margin-left:100px;">
<tr>
<td >
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Pri" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">Primary School<br>
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Sec" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">Secondary School<br>
<input type="radio" name="edu" value="Uni" style="background=cornsilk; border=0;">University
</td>
</tr>
</table>

>>what does  z-index mean?
It lets the browser layer elements on top of one another:

Elements with a "higher" number will be rendered "on top" of elements with a lower one.

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<div style="position:absolute; top:50px; left:50px; background-color:blue; width:200px; height:100px; z-index:1;"></div>
<div style="position:absolute; top:75px; left:75px; background-color:red; width:100px; height:50px; z-index:2;"></div>
</body>
</html>
