    Hi there

    How do I get it so that tables are next to each other in dreamweaver? For some reason, it always sticks them on top of each other and I can't get them to sit side by side.

    Any ideas?

    CSS would be a good way to do this if you want to, but I'm not sure if you know it or not.

    If you did want to just use tables, you can nest your two tables in another two column table, just create a new table that's 2 columns wide, and one row high, and drop your tables into each side.

    It's not the best way to do it, but it's quick. :D

    You could try one of many things:
    - float one of them to the left (or right)
    - put both tables into another table (1 row, two columns)
    - use div instead

    The problem is that I need the tables to contain thumbnails, a bit like the google image index. Does anybody know how google does this? They need to be seperate objects so they can be written with PHP.

    Many thanks again!
