    more help with tables

    ThemeBuddies Level 1
      Here is my problem. I have a header graphic wich i can get in without trouble. but what i want to do is make a table that is 800 pixels by 800 pixels. then put a background image in that table that files the entire table. then i want to make another table inside that table at the top of the table to make my vertical navigation menu. but everytime i create a table, it put's it in the center of the 800 by 800 table. How do i get the nested table to the top of the original one so i can get my nav buttons in there.
      and what about the layout option. is it good to draw your own tables.? That would solve the trouble.

          The default alignment in a table cell is left/middle. Use the Property
          inspector to change the vertical alignment to "Top" for that cell into which
          you are nesting the new table.

            By the way, you cannot control a table's height. If the contents need the
            table to expand vertically, it will do so. Also, the table height attribute
            is invalid HTML and always has been....
