resizing tables (globally - over many pages) using frontpage - how?

P: n/a
Hello...

I have a site with about 50-100 pages. All the pages have the same
layout. Just the text is different. My plan is to create "1" page and
use it as a template for the rest...just filling it with textual
content. I would like the flexibility of adjusting the pages WIDTH (by
changing the table WIDTH) at some later date without having to go to
every individual page to make the change. I've used the STYLES feature
in FP - love it! Using it, I'm able to change the font for example over
all 50-100 pages just by changing 1 page. What I'm wondering is if
there is a way to do the same to a tables WIDTH. Can I change 1 pages
table width of 750 pixels to 850 pixels and have it applied to my other
49-99 pages as well?

Thanks for any help...

Use any old templating language you like. My preference would be TT.

Style sheets - good. Frontpage - makes it rather difficult to produce decent
quality code.

If you create a CSS stylesheet for the site, you can include it in
every page on your site and the styles are applied. To change the look of
the entire site, change the style(s) in the one file, the stylesheet.
The initial change to using stylesheets does require you to add either
a <link rel="stylesheet" ... > or @import in the header of each page.
After that, style changes are easy.
I do not know if FP offers such facility.
