Hi,
Kind of new to the whole dreamweaver thing. I'm creating a website for work and am having issues with everything moving when I view it on a smaller screen in work.
I have everything in a table which I have set to 100% height & width but I've put layers on it with images and text and it's these that move off the page when viewed on a smaller screen.
I tried converting layers to tables but that option is greyed out (I think this is becasue I have both a table and layers on the one page. ) So I tried creating it with just layers but it won't convert them to a table becuase "the file cannot be made compatible with 3.0 browsers because it contains nested layers"
Sorry about the long winded email but if anyone knows a way around this I would very much appreciate it
Thanks
Sue

Hi Sue
I do not have to much experience with dreamweaver but to my knowledge( what I was told) layer are basicly use of position in CSS. Where you give them exact possition on the screen. Ussual problem with this is screen ofset. Like you sed on small screen somethinkg moved from view.
You have only two options in my opinion:
1. To put everything in table with coloms preformated if image to be use, and leave it for browser automaticali to adjust it.
Bigger screen more text next to image or smaller screen less text next to image and page longer
2. Create all layers on smaller screen and have your site displayed like my uni http://www.wmin.ac.uk/page-0
Everything nicely lay out and adjusted to left top corner
