look like your table' s width has set for 100%

table.display {
      margin: 0 auto;
      clear: both;
      width: 100%;

}

you might need to adjust your table width to the size that you need.

What size is your screen? It fits OK on mine in both IE and FF

Hi, thanks for responding.  As usual, I didn't give all the story.

I'm using 1024 x 768.

Here's the page as it was before I brought in datatables and its attendant floating divs and CSS file, so something in there has upset it but I can't work out what it is.

From comparing the screens the big difference is the sort up/down arrows in each header. These are 20px wide and there are 12 of them so your screen is now 20x12 = 240px wider than it was

That's why it used to fit on a 1024px screen and why it easily fits on my larger screen (1280px).

Ah!  That will be it.

I'll see if I can abbreviate the column headings.

Thanks.
