Trouble with Rows Automatically Sizing

Trouble with Rows Automatically Sizing

Trouble with Rows Automatically Sizing

I have created a Dynamic Web Template in FrontPage 2003. It has a table with two columns with three rows in each column. The only thing, the rows aren't the same height in each column. The column on the left has two short header cells, followed by a body cell that takes up most of the page. The column on the right has a picture in the top cell (the picture extends down into the body portion of the left-hand column). The second row is the navigation and the bottom row is an editable region that can expand to take variable text. There are also three rows at the bottom of the table that span both columns. The table was created a cell at a time using the Draw Layout Table tool.

The problem I'm having is that when there is a lot of text in the body section, all three rows in the right hand section are expanding evenly to accommodate it. What I need is for the top two rows to stay the same size and the bottom row to expand. I've tried placing a background picture in these rows, making sure the height is in pixels instead of percent, and played with the absolute position options. Nothing I do makes any difference. Oddly, I don't get that sizing issue with the top rows in the column on the left.

Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. I've been beating my head against this one and can't get it to work.


RE: Trouble with Rows Automatically Sizing


1) 1 column table in each column
2) use div instead of tables.
