    Lightbulb expanding table

    I want to create a table that will expand to fill all the available on screen area but will not expand to allow more text on a line. How should I go about doing this?

    The center table is the one that I am trying to do this too.


    also you will see the text in that table is being sent to the next line well before it has to. I can see that the text is breaking right at where the top image ends. how can i fix this so the text will continue on past that point?

    It sounds like a nesting problem.

    Add this code in the <head>

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    table
    {
    border: 1px solid blue;
    }
    td
    {
    border: 1px solid red;
    }
    </style>
    This will then show you where all your cells are, might make plain what is not obvious by looking at first.

    if not, post back. But I am off to bed, its 0100 in the morning here
