    Hey, I was just screwing around trying to make a site for a small gaming clan. Just photoshopped everything, sliced it up and was on my way. No clue why, don't ask, but the site was designed on 1280 x 1024 resolution. Any chance anyone can give some quick pointers for changing the site around to use percentages instead?

    Also, why are iframes looked down on so much? Any tips/advice is greatly appreciated

    Iframes are looked down on for much the same reason as frames are looked down on: they act weird. Sometimes, the situation calls for them, but usually, if you can design without them, you're better off. The biggest issue is, I daresay, having to do with the fact that search engines won't crawl the page inside the iframe, or will crawl it but will then point to that page, not the page containing it.

    There's a post in the tutorials forum, I believe, on why they're bad.

    Khem1,

    Well iframes and frames in general aren't the best things to use because of browser compatibility. Tables aren't that bad actually and to accomplish what you're trying to do is simple. All you have to do is include the following code in your HTML table definition tag

    something likes

    <table width="98%">

    What that will do is resize the site's design/table to a certain extent to the size of the Window you're viewing the site in. Also i wasn't able to access your site with the link you provided below.

    A good place for some HTML tutorials can be found here:

    Hope this helps you out.

    < cringe >... Don't advise using tables for layout...

    To use percentages, wrap everything in a div with an id:
    HTML Code:
    <div id="layout">
        <!-- other code here -->
    </div>
    Then, apply the following CSS (either in an external stylesheet file, or in a <style> block in your header):
    Code:
    #layout
    {
         width: 98%;
    }

    Not bad Shadowfiend, I'm use to using tables and it seems that you're exceptional with CSS. I might have to try that code and see what it does, with anything when you start nesting tags, it can get pretty tricky.

    Hardly exceptional. I just know some of the basics :-)

    Well we all have to start @ the basics first before we can learn new things right
