I am trying to build a table.  It seems to work fine, with the exception of the vertical position... it appears half-way down the page.  

Any ideas why?

Fantastic!  Now, one more question if you don't mind... how do I set the font of the entire table?

You can do that in the DIV too. The DIV just says that you are DIViding the code up. So anything for that section will use the rules.

Here is something on DIV:

Here is something on the style attributes:

So, inside of the DIV you can set your style.

<DIV id="ads" style=color:adsfadfad> <table> </table> </div>

Sorry that was a very hastily written snippet of code. It was very sloppy and I appologize.
