    John,

    For starters, the first page has table width set to 100%.
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"
    height="100%">

    It has a graphic 362 px in size, after a quick look I think this is the
    smallest width the table can have:
    <img src="media/heading2000.gif" width="362" height="219">

    On the 2nd page your set the table with to a fixed value:
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="906">

    It has a 532 px graphic in a table cell, and a fixed width table cell,
    limiting the minimum size the table can have.
    <td align="left" valign="top" width="611">
    <img border="0" src="file:///D:/Jean/Clipart/ac554.gif" width="532"
    height="35">
    Plus you have the navigation menu to the right of the page.

    I would recommend cleaning up the html, stuff like this: I would
    recommend learning CSS. You could reduce the page size and make it a lot
    more readable using CSS.

    <span style="color:blue">10AM until 5PM<br></span><font face="Arial
    Rounded MT Bold" color="#FF00FF"><span style="color: blue">Saturday
    &amp; <span style="font-size:13.5pt;color:blue">Sunday 26th &amp;
    27th&nbsp; FEBRUARY 2005</span></span></font></b><font face="Arial
    Rounded MT Bold" color="#FF00FF"><span style="color:
    blue"><o:p></span></font><span style="color:blue"><font
    color="#FF00FF"></o:p></font></span></p>

    Good Luck,
    Mike

    Many thanks, that is exactly the information I wanted. I didn't code
    the original pages and hadn't even noticed the tables. :-( I got lost
    with all the "width" info and hadn't noticed that almost everything is
    referring to graphics widths.

    Yes, starting from scratch and using CSS would seem like the way to
    go. Though I haven't had time to thank you earlier don't think I don't
    appreciate your help. It IS very much appreciated. Thank you. :)

    Regards, John.
