Setting column width

Setting column width

You can set a column to a specific width or make it stretch to fill as much of a browser window as possible. You can also specify a minimum width for a column using a spacer image.

Sometimes the column widths width set in the HTML code do not match their apparent widths on the screen. When this happens, you can make the widths consistent.

This section covers the following topics:

  • Making a column autostretch or fixed-width
  • Using spacer images
  • Making column widths in code consistent with visual widths
