1. How can I use just 75% of the screen? So There will be a little bit of screen on the left and right of the screen that I cannot use

2. Now can I have shading under my check boxes?

3. Also normall check boyes are round, how I have square check boxes?

4. In a table such as:
<TABLE width="100%">
 <TR>
  <TD width="49%">Spot </TD>
  <TD><INPUT type="text" name="myCheckbox1" value="" />
  <TD width="49%">&nbsp;</TD>
 </TR>
<TR>
  <TD width="49%">Outright forwards</TD>
  <TD><INPUT type="text" name="myCheckbox2" value="" />
  <TD width="49%">&nbsp;</TD>
 </TR>
 <TR>
  <TD width="49%">Total </TD>
  <TD><INPUT type="text" name="myCheckbox3" value="" />
  <TD width="49%">&nbsp;</TD>
 </TR>
</TABLE>
If I were to pick the input from them in ASP would I say:
Statement=Request.Form("myCheckbox1")
Statement2=Request.Form("myCheckbox2")
Statement3=Request.Form("myCheckbox3")

in the table tag, instead of 100% use 75% ... and then put <CENTER> tags around the table

Round? Are you sure you're not referring to radio buttons, or have you just been cutting corners in your checkbox code :-)

(1)

<body style="text-align: center;">
<div style="width: 75%; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: left;">
<!-- your content -->

(2) Not without jumping through quite a lot of hoops and producing some really ugly code, and then its rather hit and miss.

(3) Normal checkboxes are square, you appear to be using text boxes.

<input type="checkbox" ...>

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Don't use the CENTER tag -- it's out of date.

dorward, will using auto for the left and right margins work to center in MSIE? I don't think it will. Plus there's no need to add an extra DIV. Simply use

<table width="75%" align="center">

this will work for all browsers currently in use.

Zontar: It will, under some circumstances, the text-align mess is the work around.

<http://dorward.me.uk/www/centre/> has the details.

<table width="75%" align="center"> is just as out of date as <center>

(And I really doubt that anything will work for _all_ browsers currently in use - it just doesn't make sense on, for instance, a browser that outputs to braille)

All graphical browsers, then.

The center attribute is deprecated but width is not. Using align="center" is in fact better than using the <center> tag because the former does not affect the logical structure of the document, whereas <center> does.

Plus you lose points for using an inline style. <G>

Won't your "fix" screw things up in CSS-compliant browsers? And why use the DIV? Again this is extraneous markup that serves no purpose that I can see.

Width is still presentational markup and should be avoided.

Still presentational

Just for the sake of example. External style sheets are of course implied.

No

You didn't read the document I referenced did you? Its becuase Internet Explorer is a buggy pile of <self censored>. You can get rid of the text-align assignments and the div if you don't mind sacrifing the centring for MSIE 5.x and earlier (and if you ensure that you are in standards mode).

We'll just have to agree to disagree, then.
