    ok here is my problem, a friend made a layout for me, and im trying to
    add google adsense adds to the right of my tables, i sort of have my
    problem figured out, but below the menu table (line63) in my wysiwyg
    editor, i can not get my content table to touch with the other table,
    there is a gray space between the two tables. i would like to line them
    up to touch. im a total newbie when it comes to web design, and im
    trying to learn how to make a page without tables, but for now this is
    what i have. here is the source code, i didnt write it and im having
    trouble understanding it, and my friend is unavailable for support, so i
    figured i would tuck my tail between my legs and come to you guys for help.

    <P>This web site is brand new and under construction. Right now I
    am brainstorming for ideas, but it's more like a light drizzle. I'm
    focusing on the layout more than the content (a webmasters biggest
    mistake) but I am coming up with some good ideas.
    <P>If you have any questions, or ideas feel free to email me <a
    href="mailto:%20kyl%65%40k%64it%74y%2ecom?subject=Comment
    or Suggestion">Kyle</a>. Also, any of you
    independent banjo pickers out there... if you want me to host your files
    for others to hear, let me know. That is the direction I see this web
    site heading.

    the gap between the top frame and the content frame is what i am having
    problems with. the original is here www.kditty.com , i can't figure out
    why it does this when i add the google add to the window

    Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 98-100,
    102-103 it contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8
    (in other words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified
    Character Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the
    character encoding indication.

    sorry, i am new to this, i wasnt sure exactly what i was doing. i
    probably shouldnt have pasted the whole code in the first place, but i
    figured most people wouldnt take the time to open a page and view source.

    What's keeping you to correct that and then validate the markup? Besides,
    this isn't about the css, is it? You can still validate that.

    That, opening page, view source, usually takes less time than copy/paste
    the code into textpad/notepad, save it as html and open that page from a
    local file. And yes, people will want to _see_ the patient before handing
    out advise as on how to improve performance and looks.
    The lengthy post might also be the reason there was little to no response.
    Not everyone likes downloading a large post. I have filtered them out all
    together for example. I don't see/read anything over 7kB.

    Hmm. Before worring about a gap (that I don't see), you should want to
    fix the more serious things.

    a. fixed font size - IE users can't resize
    b. nested tables
    c. Verdana <g>
    d. Stuffed at the left

    Google for 3-column CSS layout and drop all those abused tables, eh?
    Like this:

    Might be this: <a href="mailto:%20kyl%65%40k%64it%74y%2ecom ...
    else it is something in the <embed code. Remove each one at a time and
    see what happens. Or, it might be the French quotes. Your long lines
    wrap funny, so I'm not sure where line 98 is.

    You as host maybe, but me as visitor am free to block it. I do not see
    those ads. Look up HOSTS file.

    As Barbara said, it's a lot easier to click your link then my View
    Source button. I can also press Ctrl-Shift-E and play with your CSS
    code.

    have been trouble shooting for a while, and thinking of other ways to do
    my layout without using tables.

    thanks for the CSS layout idea. i have been considering this, but wasnt
    sure how to go about it. i like the three columns it works fine for me
    and i like the look. thanks alot for the link.

    i didnt write the layout, its just an example for me to learn from,
    although i think it has set me about 2 steps back! the nested tables are
    alot more confusing than i thought they would ever be.

    i think the page is stuffed at the left because you have blocked the
    adds, thats just a test page and i wanted adds on both sides, just to
    see how it looks, its usually in the center and looks quite nice, but is
    nearly impossible to edit for someone who is inexperianced.

    the fixed font size i will look into for sure, and I LIKE VERDANA ;]

    will it mess the layout up if someone blocks the codes all the time, or
    is that just a table thing?

    There are ways, but a lot of folks say they don't work, so I'll leave
    that for you to google some day.

    No, just the ad is blocked, not the container and space it would have
    occupied.

    Once you grok the CSS layout method, you will never look back.
