Extending tables.

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?

wait so will the table be able to go farther than 600 even though i put height=600?
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.
