    Hello,
    I recently posted a message in this same topic about how you guys thought my site looked. Some people have contacted me regarding the spaces in between the left side of the navigation bar. If some of you could take a look at my source code and tell me what may be contributing to this problem, 5 turtle dollars is yours. I made the site in Dreamweaver and copied the HTML code into Geocities, but I don't know why this could be happening, thanks for your cooperation!

    I think that i have found the solution. If there are spaces between the buttons on the left side of the nav bar, adjust your text size to "smaller". Tell me if that helps.

    That's not the problem. The problem is that your menu stretches when the content is too big. Try using embedded tables with valign="top" on your <td> elements to prevent that from happening. That way, if you have more content on one page, your site will still look ok.

    Alternatively:

    Solution One
    Add another cell 'below' your navigation bar, and leave it's height blank, then set the cells with navigation buttons in to the height of the images. This way, as the text gets larger, only the bottom cell should expand, leaving the others intact.

    Solution Two
    Merge all of the cells where the navigation cells are, and insert a second table inside the merged cell. Now place the buttons inside cells on this newly created table, and set the height of the table to the sum of all the button heights together. This is known as nested tables, if you want to take a look on google.

    Let me know if these are unclear.... I'm not too great at explaining things sometimes.

    I also have another question, (Yea, I know, I have no answers to anything), notice on the Home Page, the top of the entire nav is about 2 inches from the top of the entire page, now click on a different link in my nav, such as "contact", notice how it is nearer to the top now. Could this also be contributed to tables? I thank you all for your support through this time of "crisis" for me.
