I would like to position some tables on this page:
into the "news" and "council" box. If you could help me to make them the same size as the boxes too, and to go over that other box with the writing in it and make it white. Thanx very much

Hi Rachel, welcome to the forums!
erm...your whole example page is an image? I cannot do anything about that, I am afraid. Try the HTML tutorials on the left, they will teach you how to write HTML.If one of our members helps you, please click the icon to add to their reputation!

The page looks very weird especially that iframe or whatever it is in the middle, i suggest you use simple html to do that, i could make it for you, just PM me!

Its the whole page, only I wanted to put text boxes into the spaces provided. Ive seen it done before with scrolly down text boxes and it looked really cool and simple to update (or at least until the layout got changed..)
Thanx Ianru, i've pmed you...

Then I cannot help you.
but that is not a bad thing, as you should really rethink where you are going with this. The image in itself is almost 100kb, OVER twice what an entire page should be with images code and text combined.
Looks neat is only good if people look at it. At this size the only people that would stick around while the page loads are those with a broadband connection meaning about 1 in 10.
If this is really what you want I hope you can make it work, but I have a feeling you are really not ready to give up on the majority of your potential visitors.

hmm, I have a fast connection so I dont really think about stuff like that. Thanx for the advice. Can you think of any way in which I can make it more.. compact? Or something.. :\

eliminating a full page graphic would be a FANTASTIC start, it is ot the best quality anyway and making it better quality would just add to the file size.
I would also avoid the Iframes as they are not cross browser compatible.
