Hello,

I've got a horizontal menu on this site:

www.idiaper(dot)com

Site's got 2 widths (click a any menu item for the second width)

How do I get the menu flush with the left and right side of the site and look good in all browsers and for both widths?

I've got complete access to both CSS and HTML

Sorry, and not meaning to be rude, but: What is the idea behind having 2 width?
If there's 1 thing that all designers agree upon, is that a site should have a consistent visual layout, and that the user interface is consistent throughout the site.
I suggest, you change your home page tp be consistent with the rest of the site.
In brackets: The site is very badly organized. I've counted 19 tables in the layout nested in each other, without any real need for that!
I strongly suggest a total redesign of the site.

Hi HagayMandel,

The shopping cart site is a service that we pay for. They built it, not me. They've got so much dynamic stuff going on that I can't really redesign the whole site, I would bump into their dynamic interface, and I'm not even sure how all that works. I can strip out pieces, though, like we did with the menu.

I'm open to suggestions on how to not have 2 widths. With the menu on the left and the shopping cart on the right, the middle like the smaller width is too narrow to do 2000 word articles, like we're going to put on here. But the elderly are some of our clients and they are usually looking at 800x600 so I can't widen very many pages or they can't access their shopping cart.

Your thoughts? I'm definitely open to suggestions.

Got this, looked in Google Analytics and people are using higher resolutions. Fixed width to 1000px.

Now how do I get the menu to be filled out to the left in IE?
