  1. An alternative to fixed and fluid designs is elastic. Just use the maxwidth property instead of width. However, since IE doesn't understand the very useful maxwidth property you need a workaround. This workaround can be an expression or a JavaScript. This is how it can be done with an expression: #container { width: expression(document.body.clientWidth > 800? "770px" : "auto"); height:1px;} Since this code is not valid CSS it's best to put it in a separate css file, say ie.css, and include it conditional like this: <!--[if lt IE 7]> <link href="/css/ie.css" type=text
  2. Glad you fixed the problem, but by using HTML frames you will run into bigger problems. My suggestion for you is to drop the frames alltogether, and - if you feel the frames functionality is of importance - try and emulate them with so called CSS Frames. You can make a search for CSS Frames to find a bunch of examples as well as articles on why they in most cases will be a better alternative than standard HTML frames. Here is one article and an CSS Frames example:CSS Frames or HTML FramesExample of CSS Frames
  3. Try this to make the page centered with a fixed width:div#container {width:800px;/*fixed to 800 pixels*/margin: 0 auto; /*centers the page*/line-height:130%;border:1px solid #003366;} Good luck
  4. Seems like the width of the left and right column together with the middle content area is bigger than 100%.Also, margin:0 and padding:0 for the header might help.But you really shouldn't use frames since they have alot of drawbacks. This is an article explaining those drawbacks:CSS Frames or the Frameset Tagand this is how you could do it with CSS instead of HTML Frames(frameset tag):CSS Frames

    <div> width and height

    Here is your CSS code with some comments in it. Do the few changes and get back to us. Also, what kind of layout do you want? Two col with a header?Good luck body{ height: 100%;}div{ position: fixed; /*Not supported by IE, but there are workaround. You sure u need a fixed position?*/}.BannerGreen{ background-color: #004401; top: 0;/*I have removed the % sign since it is not necissary when the value is 0*/ height: 9%; width: 100%; z-index: 1;}.BannerPurple{ background-color: #660066; top: 09%;/*Not valid with the leading 0, you have to change it*/ height: 3%; width: 100%; z-index: 2; }.Banne
  6. Try something like this. I have not put in a top navigation, but that won't be too hard, just put it within the header div or just after. The code below use an internal style sheet. For more easy website maintenance you should put in an external style sheet instead. I used an internal style sheet to make it easy to copy and try. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xml:lang="en" lang="en" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><style type="text/css">div#container {width:100%
  7. H1 is recommended to be used as the top level heading because it makes a Web page more understandable for text browsers and search engine robots.It should not be the name of the page, it should be the page topic. If it is the index page of a website it usually is the name of the site though.h1h2h3h4h5h6is better than h1h3h5h6since that too makes it more understandable for text browsers and search engines.Usually you have a header included on each page with the company/website name within it. Usually the best way is to have that name in a p element or something simular.I personally found that t
  8. Well, since Java have Applets and Servlets/Jsp and since it is the main Internet programming language, I disagree.I see your point though, the question suggestion have been to include Jsp/Servlets, not Java as in the programming language Java. But it would be great if you started making some good programming language tutorials as well:)
  9. I agree, but it could be a tutorial for all kinds of website layout explaining the pros and cons with each and one of them. And among the different layouts present a table-less design that describe the basics and don't use hacks since those usually create a domino-effect. It is clear that w3school's goal is to teach the basics and not the advanced, as well as function as a useful reference. A tutorial like this - maybe named website layouts - could still be a basic one.They would - however - have to change their own layout that actually use tables for layout
  10. I wouldn't start out using bad code alternativs such as standard HTML frames(frameset). If it's a e-commerse site I guess it would be ok, but even then there are better alternatives. I wrote an article about it:CSS FramesGood Luck
  11. Yes, as mentioned you have 2 head sections, but ur also have 2 doctypes. My guess is this correcting this would clear both of your problems. You should never start searching for bugs in the CSS code before you have validated your markup, it will take eons...
  12. While you'r at it you might wanna try a less static width by only maxWidth instead of width. The result is a design that make your centered div's width to be 500px for clients that have a display that is bigger or equal to 500px. The only difference is that client's with smaller displays don't have to scroll horizontal. In other words there be a fixed upper limit, but no fixed lower limit. This kind of design is sometimes called elastic.If you don't understand, think of it this way:When setting the width property in CSS to 500px it is equal to setting both max-width and min-width to 500px. It
  13. Normally you would not use a table for the main structure of a page, not even the header. Tables should be used only for making tabular content. Experiment some with divs in combination with the id and class attributes instead.You said you used 1 non- repeated image for background. Doesn't that image have a big file size? Usually you make a very small image and repeat it for the background.Here is a CSS 2 reference for properties and their valus. However, w3schools have their own great CSS - tutorial so it might not be needed. CSS 2 Tutorial...and here is another that you could use if you wan'

    Fake frames

    Actually I have a problem with Opera 8, the right coloumn ads comes on top of the header when I scroll. This is probably because the ads are contained in a iframe(hope google drop the iframe soon). As far as I can tell this is a Opera bug. It seem like Opera act as if the iframe was a page by itself, i.e. z-index won't work in relation to the rest of the page.Sure, I can detect Opera users with javascript for example, and simply not show the right coloumn ads, but that woudn't be a solution.(e.g. display:none).Besides using display:none could be a problem when it comes to SEO issues. You righ
  15. I haven't learned ASP.net yet. Maybe there is easier to get support using ASP, but are u sure there are more components? I mean Java API is very big...
