    Hey Everyone,
    This is my first website that I have made using simple tables. I'm making it for a friend who wants it for his gaming "clan". So, I have got all the tables and everything and I'm still working on a banner. At the moment I have two problems. The first of which is that at the top and bottom of my tables there is a massive space that I don't know how to get rid of and also how do I put a border around each individual cell, I cannot seem to figure that out yet either. I know this is probably a noob question but this is my first website and I think I'm doing pretty well to do this in a few hours.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    *I have attached the HTML file to the post.

    Just remove the first and the last table row.

    The first one looks like this (just after the <table> tag):
    Code:
      <tr>
        <td colspan="2" bgcolor="#999999"><p class="style4">&nbsp;</p>
        <p class="style4">&nbsp;</p>
        <p class="style4">&nbsp;</p></td>
      </tr>
    And the second like this (just before the </table> tag):
    Code:
      <tr>
        <td colspan="2" bordercolor="#000000" background="vortexgaminglayout/images/contentboxheader.png" bgcolor="#0066FF">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
    Usually I tell people to never use tables (and WYSIWYG editors) for design, so yeah: You should try to learn to code HTML and CSS by hand.

    Thanks. THis did not seem to work it just removed the header and footer but the space where still there. And yeah, I am learning CSS and HTML but this is a much easier option for begginers so as I progress I will start to use CSS and HTML

    Post the url to your real website so we can see it in action.
    That would be the real test of how it looks and performs.

    And besides that, are you planning on using any PHP and MySQL to drive your site?
    That looks like a nightmare to update any static pages by hand.

    Don't have a domain yet and yes I was planning to use MySQL. What would be a better way to do it?

    PHP and MySQL is pretty much required.
    I don't know of any other way to control your content.

    The project is going to be "advanced". So, you're getting
    into something that you may need to hire help (freelancer).

    With that, you might want to go with a CMS type site
    using Drupal or Joomla. That means you would use
    templates made for them (many free ones available).
    Customizing things for your own "look".

    I mention using a CMS system because that means you
    need to start all over from the beginning, with the
    installation of the scripts and templates.

    Do some more research about gaming sites and CMS
    Content Management Systems.

    EDIT:
    You can save a ton of time if you subscribe to a cheap webhost
    like www.cleverdot.com (only $30 per year). They have a thing
    called "fantastico" ... it will install Drupal or Joomla with a few clicks
    of the mouse - automatically.

    Once installed, you go into the admin panel and start building the content/database.
    You'll still have to look into templates and some tutorials.
