This is just some tips I've learned using tables in FrontPage. This web
uses a cascading style sheet (CSS), but many webs I've created use tables.
Set your table properties to make the table a specific width in
percentage. If you set the table to 75% width, for instance, it doesn't matter
whose PC or the resolution they use, it'll take up 75% of the width of their
Set your column width to percentages that total 100%. If you put your
menus in a left-hand table column, and your body text in the right, make sure
that the two widths are set to percentages that total 100%. Perhaps 20% for
the left column and 80% for the right.
FrontPage tables are nearly the opposite (at least for me) to
Word tables, in that I like
to use one long (tall) cell in FrontPage, regardless of the number of
paragraphs I have.
Even if you don't use tables for your body text, you can still use them
for headers and footers.
You can set your text with a white background and "frame" it with color by
using a 3-column table with 3 rows. Use the background property of the table
cells (right-click, FormatŕCell) to fill them
