    Yes I know bad URL I had a choice between ads from geocities or bad URL. Well you know which I picked :p Anways is there anyway to stretch the menu bar somehow the only way it seems to work is it I put a stack of text in there. (Thanks goes to imeow for the help last night :)

    Stretching that menu bar, well if it is inside a table, you can do something like this..

    <td width="35%">

    That will set the width of that column to 35% of the browser. That will work, or you can use a set amount of pixels, such as:

    <td width="20px">

    Not sure if you are using a table though, but that is just off the top of my head, hope it helps somewhat :eek:

    Oh, did you want the spacing between the menu lines to shrink and grow, sort of like an accordion? Are you sure you want to do that? If you have the same menu on different pages, you'll end up with the links at different spots on each page, depending on the content.

    Well I'd like to be able to stretch my menu bar down to where my email address is at the bottom but I'd like it to stay uniform for all the pages. Can I do that?

    You could do a couple things with tables. Here's your existing setup:
    Code:
    
        heading
     ________________
    |      |        |
    | menu |  body  |
    |______|________|
        contact
    
    You could add a row like this to the one table, making the dummy cell green to match the real menu.

    Code:
         heading
     ________________
    |      |        |
    | menu |  body  |
    |______|________|
    |dummy | contact|
    |______|________|
    
    You could also fill in the dummy cell by adding a rowspan of 2 to that menu cell.

    Or, you could put a table within a table:

    Code:
          heading
     __________________
    |      | ________  |
    | menu | | body  | |
    |      | |_______| |
    |      | |contact| |
    |      | |_______| |
    |______|___________|
    
    In any of these, you'll want to give the bottom cell a small height so that the footer stays a footer.

    if you want a better url, just use freedomain.co.nr. only thing is that you have to link back to them on your homepage, which really isn't too terrible.
