    Centered Components (table, picture or java applet)

    tgnylu
      I'm a beginner using Dreamweaver cs3. I've centered a background image vertically and horizontally within the page, but can't seem to get anything else to align with it.

      Question: Is there a way to align a table, image, or java applet vertically as well as horizontally?

      Or maybe you've got a better solution for me. Take a look at this link:

      I'm trying to center the guitar (which uses durius waterpic applet) exactly in the middle of the wooden background so that even when the window is resized, it still remains in the middle.

      Any help is appreciated!

          Trying to align page content with background images is a losing proposition.

          In general, most likely not, but it would depend entirely on your page
          layout and its infrastructure.

          I wouldn't touch those with a 10-foot pole. Many people do not have the
          Java engine installed, and would therefore just see an ugly gray box, or in
          my case, a white box with a puzzle icon in it and a link to download the
          applet engine. Plus your page takes a big hit on the weight of the applet,
          not to mention the 232K background image (at least 4 times heavier than what
          should be your total page weight). It's not worth the effort in my opinion.

            Thanks for the recommendation, but I still need an answer to my original question. The decision on whether or not to use Java isn't mine. Also, the large background image isnt' a part of the java applet and can be reduced in size later on.

            Does anyone have an answer to the question in the first post?
