but if you get control over how you display other peoples (text)data then how will poor companies like Adobe survive to sell sh*t like PDF - mind you then MS couldn't advertise this SPLIT thing where you have two windows next to each other - well you could but if they're docs then its impracticable on a small screen...On Thu, 29 Oct 2009 13:30:48 -0000, <baslake@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:My suggestion would be to put the whole page in <center> tags but it's been ages since I did any web design. I don't know if that works on complicated things as I never bothered with them.hi all,got my flame proof suite on so here goes,,,prolly a simple question (well, tis if you know) anybody know how to get one's own website to display center screeen on a wide screen display ? it displays o.k. on a normal screen and have seen sites that are central on my wide screen so know it can be done,,, but how ?? i pity website designers the grief they have to go through !! (you guessed, i struggle)bas.And since you have your flame-proof suit on, let me test it for you :PMy question to you is: Why do you want to center the page at all? I presume that this is because you have set a fixed width, limiting the range of widths or have a page with hardly any content on it.As the owner of a 17" wide screen laptop (which although big for a laptop, it's not that big these days compared to a real monitor), it really bugs me when the web site limits it's width to a third of the screen and makes me scroll down to see a page that, arranged differently, would easily have fit on my screen. I'm not even exaggerating. I really have seen sites that narrow. The flip side of that coin is that with only a 10" display on my EEEPC, there are lots of sites for which I need to scroll both horizontally and vertically, in most cases for no good reason.If there is a true need for it I have no problem, but mostly I see it as bad design.One of the things I always liked about html is that it all could move around to nicely fit in the window and I don't like when that freedom is taken away from me.
