    web site developed in 600x800 resolution.

    whitsunday lad Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I posted a problem earlier with floating logo and pages not centered in screen resolutions higher than 600x800.

       

      My site is at http://www.debtorstocash.com I developed it with a screen res of 600x800, when I checked it in the local library (with higher screen res I expect)  pages linked to the default page dont display as the do on my computer at 600x800.  The logo in some pages not centered and one page Judicial Management System (the link for this page is in centre of default page) is not centered but right on the left margin.

       

      Was it a mistake to develop in 600x800? is there a way around this?

          Nothing to do with the screen res. You simply have everything in auto-layout mode because you only use tables and paragraphs with default, limited formatting options. For more control you would have to dig into CSS formatting and using DIVs.

            CSS is a much more efficient way to style modern web sites.

            If built correctly, you can have a CSS layout that fits all different viewport sizes -- from ultra-wide, 3-panel displays all the way down to mobile phones.

            If I may offer one other bit of unsolicited advice, please ditch the GIFs and use real HTML text for content.  Images of text are difficult to read, and not recognized by search engines, translators or screen readers.  The whole point of good web design is to make your site web friendly for everyone to use.

              Hi,

               

              Thanks for that, I started to look at CSS tutorials today, for the short term I fixed my tables problem and now I am moving on to form mail communication problems.  Once I have that ironed out I will re-look at the CSS.

                Thanks for the links to above, I only have Dreamweaver MX though so I do not know if I can use all the functionality she includes in her tutorial?
