Hi all

Not sure how to explaine, but will give it go

When you are no the web you can resize the window by puting the mouse
pointer at the bottom corner and resizeing the window that way, and the
content stays the same. But my window, when you do this all the content
moves and my pictures change size.

So any help would be most hopeful

Rgds
Kevin

It's called fluidity and you'd do well not to interfere with it.

The content moves, but the pictures certainly don't change size. The
fact that the content moves to be accomodated on a smaller browser width
is a good thing, and you shouldn't try to change this. Remember, that
not everyone has the same browser size as you do.

As a matter of fact, if all sizes between 1286x1024px and say 320x150px
(PDA) are regarded to be sizes for normal browsing situations, you get
over 840000 possibilities.

Yes - it means that your site will fit nicely into whatever size window
your visitor happens to have.

If you're worried about the contents of the page moving around, don't.
It's unlikely anyone is going to resize their window while looking at
your page. Chances are their browser window is already the size they
want it.

[Comments based on Firefox 1.0.]

As I play around with resizing the viewport and watching how the
elements dance, the only thing I see that's *not* responding gracefully
is the decorative image right below the matrix of photos. The one
*above* it works better, albeit that's probably not the way you wish
it (*or* the bottom one) to appear. I see this source for those two
images:

<img src="pics/5th.gif" width=800b height=30 alt=scarf>

<img src="pics/5th.gif" width=800 height=30 alt=scarf>

I don't know what that "b" is in your image width value, but if it's a
typo that's breaking that attribute, you might want to do the same thing
with the bottom "scarf" image.

It looks like the upper scarf image is 190 pixels wide, and the broken
value is defaulting it to that true width; and the bottom one is being
stretched to the 800 pixels you've specified (throwing it off center as
the rest of the page is resized and causing the appearance of
a horizontal scroll bar you really don't need.

If "b" does mean something here, that I don't know, well -- I lurk to learn
and rarely have anything specifically about markup to add, so please carry
on without me. All of you.

[ADD] Opera seems to forgive the "800b" value, and both upper and lower
"scarf" images go 800px wide -- so they're both causing the horizontal
scrollbar and off-center display (of themselves) when the page is viewed
smaller than the size for which you wrote it.
