table sizing issue

Postby rin » Fri Aug 04, 2006 4:58 pm

I'm using php to generate table contents, but I'm not able to size my tables. I wrote them in straight html using dreamweaver so I could visually resize them, then put the widths into the php code and it's not coming out right on the page.
it's looking like http://matc.unl.edu/erinplays/badtable.jpg
instead of like http://matc.unl.edu/erinplays/goodtable.jpg
I also tried it with percents instead of pixels, but that didn't change much in the browser.

ooh, I just noticed that if I go to the page, for a second, the tables are sized right, but then it "fixes" into the wrong size. Is that something in the code or css that's doing that?

Hi, can I have the URL link so that I can look at the source code?

Thanks.

Old UNL templates restriction

HI,
In the old UNL templates you had to change the width attribute to style format because of the templates style sheets (I think that was the reason)

So what normally would have been <table> had to become <table>

Is this still the case?

thanks for the idea. i tried it and i thought it worked, but then the page finished loading and it went back to its stupid form.

why does the bb not let you post tag attributes? I knew what you meant, but it didn't show up.
