In some nice websitew I can see that all pages have the same dimensions (width and lenght). How can I do it.
When I make an editable region (for putting my content) it is expanded always in lenght.
Can I do it without CSS ?

    width and height are almost always dependant on screen resolution.
    is you are not using CSS. then fixed tables will work.

    Hi rockmansattic
    I have made a table with 5 cells
    menuleft        main cell         rightmenu

    In my main cell I have put an editable region
    where I will put all my main content.
    That editable region I have to have exactly precide dimensions. for example
    height 290pixels
    width  1600 pixels
    My problem now is that the editable region is expanded  accordingly to the content I put.
    And sometimes the lenght of my page is very sort and other times is very long.
    I want to have exactly the same dimensions for all pages
    How can I do it

    <table width="1600px" height="290px"><tr><td>
    <!-- Editable Region-->

    Althought I think CSS would be a better choice for most browsers.

    This isn't print. There isn't a fixed page size. If you have more content, you have a longer page. That's how it works. That's how it's supposed to work.
