ok i am making a website and stumbling over a problem. I have layout pics mostly as background using style. Ok well I want my layout to always be at least lets say 600 height. But when i have text typed that goes beyond the 600 i want the table to extend. I know how to make it extend when the text is typed but i dont know how to make it where I can make it stay 600 and when i type it to go over 600. Because when i try height=600 in the <tables> it wont go longer than 600.

Hi mad_man77450,

What's your code? The whole reason why some people still use tables is because even in IE, tables stretch very well. Set the height to 600, i.e. <table height="600" border="1"> and it should automatically stretch when it reaches 600. Again, what is your code?

Regards,
Zyloch

It should. You can try testing with multiple rows. However, if you want it height 600, I would recommend if you don't have much text, put it all on one row. Set width to 100% and use only one <tr> Otherwise, it'll keep stretching to fit the 600 if it's not 600 already.
