    On the site i am currently coding, i need to have it so that i can have a big contents box on the left and a smaller one on the right. The only way that i have been able to do that so far is by having one big table with two tables in it, this however causes loads of problems because the content is dynamic and so when there is more content in one of the two tables it then moves the other table down ith it so it leave a big gap at the top..... Is there anyway to do this so i an have different sizes of content in each table? Picture should clarify what i mean...

    well it seems for the time being i have solved my problem... all i did was add valign="top" to each of the tables and it has solved my problem. Feel free to delete if you want, sorry about that....

    you could do it the way you are doing...but have you ever thought about using CSS?? that would make it more precise and you could make it look awesome while still having full control over your code. Your main HTML code with also be cleaner...

    so have you thought about CSS??
    Thanks,

    its fairly easy....concepts might be a little hard to grasp...

    but if you take the time with it, it could really help you in the long run, seriously.

    you could search google on css, and you could also try going to w3 schools and learn some (free).

    visit http://www.w3schools.com

    have fun and ask for help if any is needed...
    Thanks,
    Drew
