Hello,

I am having a problem trying to get the "News" section directly in the middle of the page while keeping the "Links" section staying the same.

Right now, the "News" section appears in the middle below the "Links" section.

I want both the Links and News section to appear on the same row going across, so I can make the page look better. How do I fix this problem?

I'm not a good explainer, so I provided the source code for the page. I'm sure just by looking at the display, you will see the problem!


Also, is there any ideas to make my page look better? Like should I put a table border around the entire page? It does kind of seem unorganized, but this is my first time building a webpage.

Thanks for all who helps!

Try the span tag
using div creates blocks, but the enviroment surrounding it is seperated by a break, so you have
...content...
div-content
div-content
....content...

span does the same but runs in line with enviroment
so you''ll have
...content... span-content span-content ....content...

this is all putting it vaguely...
goggle up span, or do something like that...
you can get the tables side by side using span(maybe, but try it, i guess it should)...

Advice...
Recheck the syntax, you forgot the "(inverted coma) in line 89..
Try a nicer colour sheme...
Make it look a little neat, not a compultion but it makes reading better...

Thats all
