I put a header in the top row in my whole page sized table. Now I want to add text on top of my header, but I don't know how.

Also, how do I use layers inside of tables so that they will be fine for different screen resolutions (if possible).  I switched to frames because I didn't want to have trouble controlling what happens to layers when switching screen resolutions.

To answer your first question, I'd need to see what your header is made up from. Is this online?

As to the second, I assume you're talking about div's. Using tables to layout your page is really not a good idea, and using div's inside the cells is even worse. The whole deal about screen resolution is to setup your layout with percentages and make it flexible from a design standpoint. But I don't know what you're working on so I can't be specific...

If I don't use tables or layers (the blue boxes in FrontPage2003)

to lay out my page, how else can I do it and remain compatable to all visitors?

By using divs (layers as FrontPage calls them) and css to layout the page.

If you can show me an example of your page, I can show you how it should be setup.

So by using CSS you can have the layers compatable to all browser?

Here's a tables page.

Well, 760 pixels would be the minimum width because of the size of your header image. Other than that, this layout is completely flexible:



<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

<head>
