Archived from groups: microsoft>public>frontpage>client (more info?)

I am trying to create 2 tables of different sizes that are side by side.
Every time I try to draw or insert table it puts one on top of the other
(vertical instead of horz).
what can I do to make them side by side?
FYI
I want one table to be 132 pix x 250
the other 319 x 500

Hi,
you can't do this the way you're trying - tables will always stack
vertically. A table is a "block element" - I'd suggest reading a little on
HTML if you're not familiar with that term. Go to Insert - Table choose 2
columns 1 row width 451 (319+132). Click inside the first cell and insert
your 132 table then insert your 319 table in the 2nd row. Try not to set
heights for tables - it's unreliable at best.

Hi Jon,
Do you mean that FP will not do it and that I have to write the code to make
it work?

Actually, you can do it in FP.
Insert a table, in properties select float left.
Put your curser to the right of the table and insert another table, in properties select left align or you can float it right.

Another workaround would be to use nested tables. Yet another is to insert an additional column to have a space between two others. If you merge all the cells in this column, it will appear to be blank.

No, he means that you can't do that in HTML because of the way HTML works, but he did give you the work-around.

draw one big table, two colums, then insert two other tables in one in each cell
of the bigger table. Turn the borders off on the original big table, or format
however you need it to look.

no you can do it from the GUI.
