Im working on this webpage for a game I play, and my html is so rusty that it's sad Im even trying to do this, and someone suggested doing a CSS Fully Fluid layout (meaning no pixel-width specifiers in my CSS he says)

The issue, is I've never really worked with CSS before, so Im looking for some help as to what he means.

Here is what I have (it's not very long)Posted Image

<title>Higher Ground: Path of Ascencion</title>
<body style="background-color:black">

<table align="center" cellspacing="15">
<td colspan="5">
<img align="center" border="0" src="banner.png" alt="Higher Ground CEP Legends"/>

Not sure, but guess you are wanting the whole page flexible, but not fixed. Wish you hadn't started with tables as they went out in the late 1990s and HTML 5.0 and CSS 3.0 are now being supported inmost browsers. This means you have missed even coding to HTML 4.01 and CSS 2.1. :)

Now, I don't mind helping you fix or get you started, but don't want to be coding all that CSS from scratch for you. If you'll work on the CSS and run into problems, then post the new page with the CSS and I'll see if I can help you out.

Try making an external CSS file though and link to it if you plan to have more than one page. If, not, the embedded CSS will be just fine for one page.
