    ok here is my problem i dont know how to align a table to the left of the page and then still have text in the center to the right of the table. Also i was wanting to know how to be able to put music as a background when people go to my website.

    Here is the HTML of the website no worrys about the images or links except i want to know what percent or how many pixels would it be to make a picture for a banner across the top.

    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>Fran's HELLA COOL Page</TITLE>
    </HEAD>
    <BODY BACKGROUND="D:\Program Files\Spaceports\stars.gif" Link="#eef748">

    and you seam to be thinking that if you have a font tag <font color=black> you have to close it with a </font color=black> when all you have to do is have the </font>

    When you want images to the left or right of text, you don't need a table. But, tables can help create blank spacing easier than HSPACE= or adjacent char #160`s can. Here's how one can have image, space, text, space, image - assuming the images are narrow enough to fit and still allow the spaces and text

    <TR><TD><IMG SRC=image1.gif>
    <TD>0000
    <TD>text that you want in the middle
    <TD>0000
    <TD><IMG SRC=image2.gif></TD></TR>

    I've left out the ALT= BORDER= WIDTH= HEIGHT= and closing </TD> tags for each cell (they really aren't required if the <TABLE ...> isn't nested inside another <TABLE ...>).

    Replace the 0000 with char #160`s via the ALT keypad or using the & #160 ; convention (without the spaces shown here to make it display.

    Though that may be true (I think, don't really get what ur sayin lol), using tables, I think especially for someone newer, is better practice and easier to format anyways.

    maybe it's an alignment issue. Try making the table 100% and aligning different thigns using <p align="...">. Anyways not exactly sure what your sayin so post if you still can't figure it out.

    What you're trying to do IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT!

    Placing links in any cell via the images or text is the same as anywhere else on the page.

    Provide the URL to your testing "work in progress" page and explain what isn't the way you want it to be. Then, it may be easier to provide the exact coding needed to accomplish what you want.

    What is easy for some is difficult for others. My mom tried learning HTML(for fun in college) and was oblivious to the easiest commands. Patience must be kept for those that are slower learners, HTML can be very difficult to some. Yes, he must learn to work with tables better, but thats what these forums are for, to learn.

    I thought about reposting my thoughts in a better way I didn't actually mean to criticize. It is a fact that some learners are faster than others, I think I was in the middle, but hey you could actually be fast and I didn' t know it. I was actually kinda tellin benzden not to criticize you and I did it myself lol. I'm sorry, I was kinda havin a...not so good day... and wasn't in such a great mood. I went to far with my message of "patience", sorry.

    That's why I ignore posts like that one. If we didn't want to help others, we wouldn't be here - regardless of our communication skills. And, rather than beating around the bush, getting to the point of the problem will usually solve it faster.

    And, in case anyone hasn't noticed, I'm not about to write someone's code for them. Just my personal teaching and learning method.
