Tutorial 1 - Basic Web Page Creation

Page Layout:

By creating tables you can have more control over the layout of the page.

 

When you click on the "insert table" button, you will have to decide how many columns and rows you wish. Three columns and three rows gives a basic design which has flexibility. Try using that as a starting point.

Enter "0" for the border and make the Table Width 100 percent.

A border of "0" means that it will not be seen when the page is viewed in a browser. 100% means that the table fits across the entire page.

You can stretch the size of the boxes by clicking and pulling the bottom of the table frame. The boxes will also stretch to accommodate whatever you put in them. Each box can be used for text and/or images.
