    I would be ever so appreciative if some kind soul could take a look.

    Here's my code, how can I position the table about 200px from the top
    and 100px from the left?


    <body bgcolor="#ffffff" text="#804000" link="#804000" vlink="#808080"
    alink="#ff0000" >

    <table border="0" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="1">
    <tr>
    <td><a href="index.html">Home</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="gallary.html">Gallary</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="aboutartist.html">About Artist</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="extras.html">Extras</a></td>
    </tr>
    </table>


    </body>

    AND I actually have three columns I'd like to do. the second with a
    paragraph of text that wont follow the same height of the first col and
    the third with an image placed at the top...I got the paragraph to work
    decently enough, but the image needed to be positioned at the
    top...couldn't seem to figure it out....

    I really appreciate any and all help!! Thanks

    ok...here's a little bit more to throw in...I'm testing out these whole
    "nested tables" and not being particularly successful. I want three
    cols with a nested table in the first col including 1 col and 5
    rows....take a look at the code and see what I'm doing wrong, because
    it just keeps aligning vertically.


    <table>
    <tr>
    <td>
    <table border="0" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="1">
    <tr>
    <td><a href="index.html">Home</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="gallary.html">Gallary</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="aboutartist.html">About Artist</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="extras.html">Extras</a></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td width="250"><FONT class=size9 face="Georgia, Times, serif"
    color=#8b887e>{This is a paragraph all about what the artist does. This
    is a paragraph all about what the artist does. This is a paragraph all
    about what the artist does. This is a paragraph all about what the
    artist does. This is a paragraph all about what the artist does. This

    </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><img src="umbrella_single.gif" name="img2962" id="img2962"
    alt="" width="130" height="122" border="0" />
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    Putting it in an inline style just to illustrate the style itself:

    <table style="margin: 200px 0px 0px 100px;">

    top, right, bottom, left is the order for the shorthand "margin"

    I suspect you are unnecessarily using tables for layout. And
    giving only partial descriptions here of what you are trying to
    achieve. Provide a URL if you can.

    Perhaps time for you to read:

    YEAH OK, I am RETARDED!!! I figured it out, PLEASE DON'T RESPOND TO THE
    ABOVE....However, the only difficulty now is that I still don't know
    how to bring the whole table so it's positioned 200px from the top and
    about 100 from the left.

    I doubt you are retarded. I see deepness in you. Read on.

    You mean, you figured it out but you did not at all? This some
    sort of adventure in logic? Sally? <g>

    I tell you how exactly how to do it and you still don't know? OK.
    Now you are engaging in some sort of deep epistemological
    adventure about the true meaning of "know"? <g>

    I'm embarrassed to admit this, but that's what I've been using. I'm
    struggling apparantly, but I REALLY appreciate your help!!

    Don't worry. I posted a suggestion about margins about 30 minutes
    back. Try it and your table should position itself where you want
    as long as there is nothing else you have not told us.
