HTML for image sizing problem

P: n/a
Hello

Hope I'm posting this in the right place. I need a bit of help with my
HTML coding.

Basically I have 3-4 images lined up across the page a number of
times. Each image has been sized using the size and width tags. I have
used preformatted text underneath the pictures to label them.

This all works fine when the page is at full screen but if the browser
opens the page at less than full size the image at the end of the line
falls down below the rest and ruins the preformatted text.

What can I do to solve this as simply as possible? Will I need to
format the pictures and words into a table?

Regards,
David

That's about the size of it. You have to use tables to control
formatting in an HTML page. Be sure, though, that your page is not
too wide. Many people still only have 800x600 browsers and if you
create a table, they will have to scroll to see everything.

Poor advice. CSS layout is a better alternative in most situations. If you
meant table markup is the only way to control the format of a page layout
*totally within the HTML* then OK. But it's not how one *ought* to go
about this.
Be sure, though, that your page is not
too wide. Many people still only have 800x600 browsers and if you

Good advice. I'd add that some people have very large screens, so they
have more than one app visible. Therefore, their viewport may only be
500px wide. Your design should flex from 500px or smaller to as wide a
screen as the user wishes to dedicate to their browser.

Indeed. As folks migrate from 800 to 1024 and 1260 etc. one often
enough finds that their typical window size *de*creases, now that they
can meaningfully have two windows alongside each other instead of
having to make-do with them overlapping.

Interesting. I wonder how most browsers manage to format my site without
tables, then?

Hm. Many people still run their screens at 800x600: the browser size
will be smaller, especially if not maximized.

You mean "a fixed-width table". Inadvisable though the use of tables is,
it's perfectly possible to create fluid pages that resize to screen
dimensions with a table-based layout.
