    Hi Greg,

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>HaLeftMargin="0" RightMargin="0" in your tag <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Do you mean, where should you put this? These are Internet Explorer-specific attributes of the BODY tag, so to use this very page's tags as an example, you might see:

    &lt;body bgColor=#f5f5ff TopMargin="0" LeftMargin="0"&gt;

    [I set this post to "Disable HTML," so hopefully it comes through exactly as entered. The above has TopMargin but not RightMargin set.]

    Actually, this message page may be a bad example, as I see it has two BODY tags, plus additional BODY attributes set through a STYLE element!

    Anyway, view the HTML source in FrontPage (hit the HTML tab?), look for the BODY tag, and add:

    LeftMargin="0" RightMargin="0"

    if they aren't already there.

    Was that what you were looking for?

    TECHNICAL (LONG) ANSWER:

    OK. The margins won't help you there. I don't have a horizontal scrollbar, but I'm viewing your site at 1024 x 768. At 800 x 600, the horizontal scrollbar shows up, because the width of the top menu is just a little too much for that setting. Ideally, you should design for 800 x 600 pixel-width, because an estimated 97% of users are at that setting or above. I believe Yahoo! did this within the last year (they targeted 640 x 480 for years).

    That means, the maximum width of any element on your page, including tables, images, etc., should not exceed 800 pixels minus the width of the vertical scrollbar.

    Just taking a quick glance, it appears there's a Flash element in there at 800 pixel-width, which would ideally be shortened. Also, there's a relative table-width setting of 100%, which also tends to skew pages. [A relative width, of course, means that the size of an element on a page is set relative to the size of the browser, so a 100% setting means "take up all available space," which, again, tends to force everything outward.] My personal preference is for fixed widths across the board--that way you have more control over your site's appearance for different user configurations (and reduce problems like the above).

    BUSINESSMAN'S (TIME IS MONEY) ANSWER:

    Narrow your site a bit.

    hi clickcheck, okay .. i know what's wrong now. thanks for bringing this to my attn as i thought our 800wide nav bar had been replaced with 770wide. our new 770w nav bar was actually changed and uploaded BUT our site just transferred to a new host, and that's the old site with the old 800w nav bar that we're looking at right now.

    thank you
