FP 2003 - Drawn Lines move/distort when Explorer Window in down position

FrontPage 2003 -  I’ve built a test draft site, and divided the page into sections using tables, which works great; however, to provide some distinct line definitions between areas on each page, i.e. horizontal, and vertical lines to separate the side menu/nav bars, and various text portions on the page, etc…

If I open my Windows Explorer in full screen mode, the pages look great, but when shrinking the screen, using the “middle down/maximize position button” on the top right of the window, I noticed that the lines do not shift with the text, but rather slide all over the place blocking and/or distorting some areas of the page.

How can I implement dividing lines that hold their position?

An example can been seen on the opening page, and on the anyone of the calendars..[Oct, Nov…]; I’ve removed most lines from the other pages, but would really like to put them back if possible.

Hi DWB,

Very clean elegant website by the way.

It seems that your tables are 100% in size, so when the page is minimized,  the tables try to adjust and cause this distortion.  If you want the tables unchaged no matter what you do,  you better put the table measurments in Pixels.  I.e,  instead of 100%, make it 799%.

Hope it fixes the problem.

Thank you for the compliment; my goal was indeed to present a clean[er] looking website.  I found the main site (http://www.thercr.com/) to be slightly busy, but I'm learning.

I'll play around with your suggestion, and see what I can manage.

Again, thanks for your response!

Cheers,

Dave
