I have a table that is 750 pixles long.  I have an image that is 689 pixles long.  Why does internet exploder (no pun intended) show the table being about 900 pixles long?  When i look at the source it still shows the table properties as 750 pixles.

Here is the code

---- Begin HTML -----
  <table width="750" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr>
      <td colspan="4" align="center"><div align="left"><img src="/auction/DHL_Logo_Top.gif" width="689" height="36"></div></td>
    </tr>
----- End HTML ------

Any idea? this is an Intranet site, other wise i would give you the link to view it.

Thanks.

There's not enough there to diagnose I'm afraid, but you might try doing this:

<table width="750" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" style="table-layout:fixed;">

If you want, i could paste the whole page.  There is some ASP scripting in there as well.

... forgot to mention - it "appears" that your div is unecessary - you may want to remove it and just set the alignment on the td cell instead:

<td colspan="4" style="text-align:left;"><img src="/auction/DHL_Logo_Top.gif" width="689" height="36"></td>

although left aligned is usually the default, so even that may not ne needed...

Thanks,
Sean

without the picture at the top it formats just fine.  With it, it grows to 900 or so.

Yes - it's just conflicting values that you're passing.

The first cell should only have a width of 65 (750 - 685) but you have a 203 wide table in that cell further down.

You also have incorrect colspan attributes.

I can post a correct version, but I'll need to change the widths on the tables and cells that you've set. So which one's can I adjust?

Here's an example of correct values:

    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" align="center"><font size="+3">
        <input name="Num" type="hidden" id="Num2" value="<%=AuctionNum%>">
        <%=RS1.Fields("ItemName")%></font></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" align="center">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" align="center"><strong>Description:</strong>&nbsp;<%=RS1.Fields("Description")%></td>
