    Dreamweaver CS3 - template help

    www.barnesconnections.org
      I am unable to get my website to fit in the middle of the screen. It looks fine on my pc but on some, it spreads out to fit the entire screen. I would rather have it fit in the middle with the spaces hanging on both sides... (maybe I chose the wrong template) Can you advise in the simplest way (since I know nothing of codes etc) how best to fix this.
      Thank you

          I forsee rough waters for you - DW is not for those who "know nothing of
          codes".

          Your entire page is contained within this table -

          <body bgcolor="#C0DFFD">
          <table width="100%"

          If you would rather that table be fixed width and centering, then you would
          have to change the code to -

          <body bgcolor="#C0DFFD">
          <table width="xxx" align="center"

          (where 'xxx' is the width you select for the page)

          And by the way, that page is not the child of a DW Template.

            Thanks for your advice. I edited the code as you suggested and that is exactly what I was looking for. I have updated the home page will do the rest tomorrow. This is the first site I ever designed by reading dreamweaver forums and so I guess I have practiced to surf in rough waters (www.barnesconnections.org)
            Thanks so much for your help.

              You have *no* idea! Try reading through some of this -
