Table Troubles

P: 2
I used tables to format my html pages but find that they expand vertically to fit the content. That's not what i want. I'm guessing there is a simple way to make the table size absolute. I don't want users to have to scroll down to fing the "next" button--that's annoying, esp. for novice viewers.

I'm a bit confused. You say you want to make the height absolute, but then say you don't want users to scroll. Post the code you have so we can get a better idea what's going on. You could set the height of the table data to auto so it will expand with the content.

I don't want it to expand vertically. I created a 2-column, 2-row table so that users would not have to scroll to see the "next" button.(Hypothetically) If there was ever an intance of too much text, I would create another page or add a scrolling text box. This is all within an e-learning template. <table width="732" height="450" border="0" cellpadding="5 pixels">
The cell that contains text is 319 x 400.

Post your code please. Also, I don't think cellpadding=5 pixels isn't valid it should just be 5
