Hi David

I'm trying to place a frame around the poems that members submit to the site and it is working but I have to have a fixed width.
The height can be anything and the frame grows or shrinks to suit, but is it possible to get the width to shrink and grow as well?
Here is the code I'm using.

Code: Select all

    <div style="margin: 0 auto;">
               <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="text-align: {TEXT};">
                  <tr>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-01.gif" width="50" height="50"></td>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-02.gif" width="300" height="50"></td>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-03.gif" width="50" height="50"></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-04.gif" width="50" height="300"></td>
                     <td bgcolor={COLOR}>{TEXT1}</td>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-05.gif" width="50" height="300"></td>
                  </tr>
                  <tr>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-06.gif" width="50" height="50"></td>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-07.gif" width="300" height="50"></td>
                     <td background="./frames/frame_{NUMBER}/frame-08.gif" width="50" height="50"></td>
                  </tr>
               </table>
            </div>

Hey Graham,

Have you tried using percentages instead of fixed widths?

Checked with a styles "expert" friend of mine and he said to try just removing the width="300" from the other columns.
