I am actually moving these questions over from a thread in PHP because the original questions I had evolved into learning this aspect of coding that I've never addressed previously.
I am trying to get pictures displayed in a rotating fashion as part of a page header. Initially I used tables for the formatting, but ran into an issue with how it was displayed, so started investigating the use of Div tags, and am running into some similar display issues, but would really like to develop an understanding of their use.
What I was getting was a large white space above and to the left of the picture, and it was pushed out of the space (table cell) that was supposed to contain it when it was displayed.
So, I did a little research and studying on using div tags to replace the use of tables for layout, and while I haven't gotten that perfected just yet, I still have the exact same issue with the display of the pictures.
any ideas on how to fix it so that doesn't appear like that?
Then also, in the div tag usage... I'm continuing to study and play with that, but if you have any suggestions on getting the overall container (960 wide) centered in the middle of the monitor, that would certainly help a lot.
It seems that the size of the whitespace around the pics in the rotator is overrunning the limitations of the div that it is to be contained in...
I know this is a couple of different issues, but they appear to be related in the sense that I need to resolve both of them to get this page completed.
thanks in advance.
And Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers in here and those related to others that hang out in here.
