HTML Table Resize Problem

P: n/a
I'm using VS.Net 2003. I have a Web App where I'm trying to resize cells in
an HTML table just the way I want in design view. Whenever I try to drag the
size of the cells it snaps to larger sizes and acts really weird. Also it
doesn't go exactly where I want it to go. My cells are not the size I want
them I am having trouble sizing them correctly. Does any have suggestions or
a good resource for me to learn about using HTML tables in design view?
Thanks a bunch.

Have you tried just going into the cell properties and manually setting the
cell's width in pixels? Or percentages? I never like using percentages
because I'll never end up with an exact 100% across the whole table and
everything always goes wacky on me but if you want them half and half, you
can just use 50% and 50%, also there's settings to auto-size to content I
believe that may be causing them to act funky. Just explore the properties
and change some things to see their reaction, if I'm ever at a question of
how something works, I'll just back it up and break it a few times to see
what causes it to react the way it does.

Thanks Xedecimal. I've tried looking at every nook and cranny I can find in
the properties. The Styles seem to be messing me up. When I code the HTML
by hand it seems to work better. Trying to use the WYSIWIG to drag the table
doesn't seem to work well for me no matter what I do. Thanks again.
