I always seem to start out with good intentions using tables and then as a page develops it gets complicated, or I do something to add 2 or 3 hundred pixels to the overall table's width making it wider than the size intended. So, once again I need to ask for some basics.
I want a centered table that would be suitable for including browsers still at 800x600, yet centered for users with higher resolutions. I have to use tables within tables for various components on the page.
Can someone please tell me the GENERAL method to do this? Do I nest all tables within the outermost table that I presume is set to 100% (always nesting one in another) or.. do I build tables like stacked bricks within the outermost table?
Since I am considering browsers with 800 width resoltion, and I want my tables not to exceed their viewable areas, are the inner tables fixed size?
I just need some understanding why I always run into trouble
