True enough, however assuming (a dangerous thing) that the target audience is using PC-only devices (as opposed to wireless/etc) it is usually safe to assume that there is room for two columns of frames in the window (the menubar/main real-estate phenomenon). Additionally, it is possible to use relative values with absolute positioning and widths

<div style="position:absolute; top:0px;left:0px;width:100%;height: +100px;" > header real estate </div> <div style="position:absolute; top:100px;left:0px;width:20%;" > left menu </div> <div style="position:absolute; top:100px;left:20%;width:80%;" > main real estate </div>

I'm not going to disagree with you that in general staying away from anything that assumes a particular screen size, but your same advice would also apply to

  • frames
  • tables with width/height specifications

And since he's already got frames here, whether he picks tables to maintain his possibly-too-wide page format, absolute-positioned seems easier

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
