Something in the CSS file is stopping content from flowing right.

See example: http://www.mffais.com/mffais/about.html

What needs to be changed to allow content to flow right?

So you want the bar with menu to float when you scroll the page down?

at line 84, make the width of td as flexible

<tr><td width="50">&nbsp;</td><td width="100">&nbsp;</td><td style="min-width:800;width:auto;">&nbsp;</td>

@florjan: No, no bar floating. I want the text to flow right instead of getting cut off.

Example (2nd sentance):
..., leading newspapers, magazines and
publicity

On the that line it should be:
..., leading newspapers, magazines and lots of
publicity

@gurvinder372: That didn't fix it, I am sure it is something in the "/css/style.css" that is causing it.

You are using invalid tags inside of a list.  You have a UL element (unordered list), which is only allowed to have "list items" (LI) as children.  In your code, you have some paragraphs (P) as direct children of the UL, which is not allowed.

Try putting an LI tag AROUNG your P tags so that:

Current markup:
<ul>
  <li>...</li>
  <li>...</li>
  <li>...</li>
  <p> (this is not valid) </p>
  <p> (this is not valid) </p>
</ul>

Open in new window


Would become:
<ul>
  <li>...</li>
  <li>...</li>
  <li>...</li>
  <li>
      <p> (this is valid) </p>
      <p> (this is valid) </p>
  </li>
</ul>

@freshgrill:
You've laid out your website using tables and your content is suffering because of it.  Any reason you chose tables?

Ahh crap, that didn't really fix it... but you should do it anyways ;)

On your .main style, you have a width of 852px with overflow:hidden;

Inside of your main DIV, you have a table with width of 955px.

I think from there you can figure it out, you have a wider table inside of a narrower DIV.  Fix one or the other and everything will start working.

For example, change your table width to 100% instead of 955

Designbyonyx figgured it out before I did. I'm just providing copy paste code. So change
<table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0 width="955"> 

Open in new window

to
<table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0 width="100%">

Open in new window

While that is a viable solution, you still have a large item inside of a smaller item... which is just not right.

Here is what you have, which is not right:
<div class="main">
  <table width="955">...</table>
</div>

.main {
   width: 892px;
}

Open in new window



Here is one solution:
// Change the width of .main so it will fit the table
.main {
   width: 955px;
}

Open in new window



Here is another solution:

// Make the table 100% wide so it will ALWAYS fit the full width of .main
<div class="main">
   <table width="100%">...</table>
</div>

Open in new window
