    Greetings,
    At: http://www.equipmentpolice.com/scroll.htm
    Can't figure how to get the width down to 100%
    so it can not be scrolled to the right.
    I have tried adjusting all the suspected attributes to no avail.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Jack

    It might have something to do with this line in your code:
    Code:
    <table WIDTH=107%>
    You'll want to test that out in Opera and a Mozilla browser ASAP. It's pretty broken in those browsers.

    Thanks Usurper,
    That didn't work.
    I experimented with all the widths and nothing effects the overall.
    Any thoughts?

    I actually think that you may want to start over again with the main part of the HTML and re-mark it up. Put a doctype on it, make the tags lowercase, and make sure that everything is completely right. I see a lot of errors in your markup that could cause this error.

    HTML Code:
    <IMG SRC="jw.jpg"IMG STYLE="position:absolute; TOP:90px; LEFT:10px; height:350px" width:300px;>
    You have to be careful with stuff like this. It can ruin an entire page. The browser won't recognize the fact that you have the width:300px there.

    HTML Code:
    <DIV style="position: absolute; top:90px; left:300px; width:755px; height:25px">

    I also say that I can't really understand why you've done this. You could just put <p> tags around this and it would work like you want it to. You've also not closed the DIV tag there.

    HTML Code:
    <IMG NAME="img12" IMG SRC="pasta.jpg" border=0 HEIGHT=70 WIDTH=150 Alt="PASTA COOKERS">
    Also, here, repeating the IMG isn't needed. It should be:

    HTML Code:
    <IMG NAME="img12" SRC="pasta.jpg" border="0" HEIGHT="70" WIDTH="150" Alt="PASTA COOKERS">
    I see this in many places in your source.

    Besides these things, you have some redundant markup that isn't really needed.

    I wasn't going to bring this up, but I figure that, since I've said so much already, I should just say it. This site could easily be done in a much more usable, cross-platform way.

    Thank you Stephanie!
    Yeah, I realize there are many errors but I do these pages myself and have not had luck with editing programs.My primary function is selling restaurant equipment and I have just gone with what works for the most part.
    I have not had much luck hiring someone to edit them as most seem more hung up on pontificating rather than just doing what needs to be done.
    As to the redundency: at the time I did this, that was the only way it would work.
    Anyway, I will follow your recomendations and see what happens.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Jack

    Learning HTML/CSS generally doesn't take too long, and once you do learn it you can do a lot of interesting things. I suggest staying away from WYSIWYG editors as those tend to bloat pages and make more work for those trying to help you figure out what the heck went wrong with your site.

    A few things that I can suggest: http://www.w3schools.com is a very nice tutorial site. http://www.csszengarden.com shows the really awesome things that can be done with advanced CSS layout and design (I suggest a viewing in Firefox, not Internet Explorer). http://www.w3.org has all the standards specifications and usability guidelines that are important.
