Hi Janice,

The way I deal with this problem is to put the whole shebang into a 100% wide,
one row table, this makes the tables behave.

Try that and see if that works.

|Hello evolt...
|I'm having 'fits' with a header I'm designing for a client site. After
|reading the excellent article on evolt regarding liquid pages, I've designed
|the pages to fit within the browser window when the window is wide and
|condense to a minimum of 600 pixels when the window is narrow.
|My problem is the header. I need each row to be independent of each other
|with regards to centering. As the user makes the window narrower, the text
|and images need to slide over to the left as far as possible and when making
|the window wider, center in the browser window.
|All works fine until the user makes the window narrow. Then, because each
|table contains a different amount of data, scrolling to the right, shows my
|tables as 'stairsteps' rather than flowing to the right window border as it
|I've tried putting the entire header into its own table, but then the rows
|don't slide to the left as they need to - they remain centered on the widest
|portion - the top header.
|You can see my work in progress at
|tia for any insights!
