I feel awkward asking about a HTML question when i''ve been writing it for like 3 years now... but anywho, i''ve talked to multiple people about the fallowing code
<table border="1" width="100%" height="100%">
<tr>
    <td colspan="2" width="100%" bgcolor="#dddddd">kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td width="211" bgcolor="#dddddd">aaaaaaaaa</td>
	<td>sssasdasd</td>
</tr>
</table>
 
So far, we have absolutly no idea what''s wronge with the code, please do notice that if you add another <td> to the second row, the 211 pixels apply to it also, and when you apply 211pxls to the other <td> it applies to the opposite colum, please help me if you can, and excuse me for being off topic

well what is it doing and what is it supposed to do?

right now my html file looks like this:



<table border="1" width="100%" height="100%">
<tr>
<td colspan="2" width="100%" bgcolor="#dddddd">kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="211" bgcolor="#dddddd">aaaaaaaaa</td>
<td>sssasdasd</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>


it shows 3 panes: one large one on top, and 2 smaller ones at the bottom. the bottom left is bigger than the bottom right.

I''m not clear on what the problem is. You want the cell to be exactly 211 pixels across? This really bites, i''ve run into it before.

I know this: table/TD "width"s are more of a suggestion than a hard rule. Also, tables will auto-shrink if there is not enough content to fulfill your width request. Using relative widths like 100% can screw up your code too, which is why i don''t use them much anymore. Try removing it from your table width and see what i mean. You can use CSS attributes to get more precision. But first try this and you''ll see your 211 pixel "suggestion" take effect:




<table border="1" width="100%" height="100%">
<tr>
<td colspan="2" width="100%" bgcolor="#dddddd">kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="211" bgcolor="#dddddd">aaaaaaaaa</td>
<td>

Nest a table. It'll fix it right up.

ie:


<table border="1" width="100%" height="100%">
<tr>
<td width="100%">Blah Blah</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="100%">
<table border="0" width="100%">
<tr>
<td width="211">Left Cell</td>
<td>Whatever Is Left</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>


Or better yet, embrace the new standards and start using divs with CSS.
