help with general overview for new site design, tables, centering and dmx
Posted on 2003-11-14
I've just been sent a design that needs re-design. It's striking, but it's done with frames (4 frames). they are skewed so although each is squared off, they intersect at the bottom lower right of the screen. The navigation is on the top right. The lower two "quadrants" are shorter. The logo is on the lower right.
The client likes the design. I think I can maintain this design without using frames, but the idea of percentage or size of cells and overall size of tables AND whether or not to center has always been elusive to me. I want this viewable on all typical size resolutions and typical browsers.
Can someone help me with advice on cureent ways to keep the page centered, and resizable? I know some of the old ways are being phased out and I want to avoid that. I'm using Dreamweaver MX (not yet upgreaded to 2004, but soon will.)
