I am using FP 2003. I am wondering if layers look good in a veriety of screen resolutions, or better yet, how can I make layers as flexible as tables for working with a variety of screen resolutions?

Is there some way to convert layers to frames or vise versa?

Layers are not as flexible as tables for screen resolutions. The issue with layers is that as you move them around they assuem absolute positioning in relation to the top left corner. So as resoultions change so does the position of the layer. I have not found a way to use percentages so in most cases I use tables. When I am designing in an Intranet environment and I know everyones setup then layers are the way to go. I love the ability to move them around and place tables, graphics, text, whatever inside.

As for the conversion to frames I do not think there is a way to do this.

Well its very difficult to say which is better, Layers or Tables in frontpage.  Most people preffer tables as it is easy to deal with them.

You cannot convert layers to tables in Frontpage. As you can convert them visa versa in macromedia dreamweaver.

Yes they do, much better than using tables actually.

>>how can I make layers as flexible as tables for working with a variety of screen resolutions?
All depends on your layout. There are many, many examples:

Convert, no. What is it you're trying to accomplish?
