    I really am not so great at coding HTML, and have not done a pure table based site in years. I am a little stumped at this seemingly 'easy' problem, however no one at my firm can help me today.

    http://www.public-projects.net/clien...ion/index.html

    I want the cell on the right side, beneath the recent news header, to come up to below the header graphic, instead of where it currently is. The grey is the background of the cell. It should fill the whole space beneath the News header.

    If I type too much in the left side column (Upcoming Events) the text in the right side columns starts farther and farther down.

    Does this make sense?

    Hey there. This has happened to me too at times. I've noticed that ideally tables should be the same size on both sides or else one side moves down to compensate for the problem.
    What I usually do is use a blank gif image at the bottom of the column that's moving like this:
    <img src="blank.gif" width="whatever you want" height="100%">
    This should compensate for it and make the two sides even. Hope this helps a bit.

    For that table cell, use the property valign="top" i.e. <td valign="top">

    On a side note, you should NEVER use height = "100%" in anything, it's not supported in any versoin of HTML and only bastardized supported in very few versions of IE.

    Well, sorry for giving out bad advice.

    So much for me making a good entrance here. I guess I should go change all my code now...

    Most IE browsers in use support height="100%" and the latest Netscape / Moz browsers do, as well. Nevertheless, it is not a W3C spec'd attribute value, so I agree that it should not be used much.

    lol, sorry about that Eddy... didn't mean to come off as harsh as I did. I'm just very anti ie-only coding.

    PS Transio check your PM
