    Post HTML Gurus?

    Hi Guys

    I created my website using 800x600 resolution and its looks fine but when I tried viewing it at 1024x768 the title banner is off-centre. I tried using the centering feature in Dreamweaver but it comes out the same

    Could one of you HTML masters please take a look at the code and tell me how to fix it?

    Thanks.

    this one is simple andy.

    open your html file bannerframe.htm and look for the following source...

    "<img src="images/banner10.jpg" width="586" height="50" align="absmiddle">"

    change it to the following and you should be fine...

    "<center><img src="images/banner10.jpg" width="586" height="50></center>"

    I think dreamweaver added the "absmiddle" tag. this is a rubbish attrib of the <img> tag.

    if you get the chance and are into learning HTML properly, get rid of dreamweaver (its rubbish, and produces poor code) and spend the time with a good HTML book/internet resource to learn howto code.

    you will be surprised how easy it is to pickup. I do ASP/HTML websites/applications for a living and NEVER use dreamweaver..... I personally use Homesite.

    hope that helps.... ive finished my rant!

    When I do HTML I do like to use a editor to make the page, then I use notepad to clean up the code and make any changes. I always find that to be easiest.

    Glad to see someone else uses Homesite and the <center> tag still!! I never liked the WYSIWYG editors, besides it only took me an hour and a half to learn HTML 5 years ago, and like magnetik I have moved on to ASP which is much better.

    the center tag is dated. use <div align="center"><img src=""></div>

    php is superior to asp

    i dont know what version of homesite you guys are using but the newest version is very buggy. i recently switched to editplus (basicly notepad w. colors).

    Yes the <center> tag is dated but still works in all browsers, and it is what I am used to using. Once it stops working then I will use <div>.

    "php is superior to asp"
    Yes but ASP+ is superior to PHP

    I have stuck with Homesite 4.5 as you are right that the newer version is still buggy and doesn't offer many new features.

    HTML-kit is the greatest editor program I've found. It allows you to edit files directly on the ftp server, and has text-highlighting.

    It's textbased, not wysiwyg, which I like.

    And, it's FREEWARE
