Hi Elsi while we are on the topic of screen resolutions can you tell me
how to prevent my page from sliding to the right under higher resolutions?
I only use 800 X 600 on my computer because with higher resolutions the
print and all the icons are all so tiny..... So my webpages look fine
in 800 x 600 but no so on higher resolutions.
