Check this if you'll be adding code (or don't like smileys).
To confirm that you are human write OK, uppercase:: (by the way we have several filters in place and we monitor everything, so don't loose time)
shortcuts (IE and NS6 only): hit alt+s to send, alt+p to preview, or alt+r to reset

I have made a CD catalogue using CDFRONTEND which i have distributed and i am very happy with it. I have now downloaded the trial version of HYPERPUBLISH intending to publish my catalogue on the web.
I open my catalogue in hyperpublish (catalogue made with CDFRONTEND) and all seems fine and exactly as i have made it, But when i try to publish it in my browser preview the tables are all over the place. Am i missing something??
Thanks in advance for your usual helpful responses.
My catalogue has been set up using tables.

On the web the way the tables are rendered is not perfectly identical for all browsers. This for all tables. Usually an image contained without a column do force the column width - this may cause problems.
Also, some browsers do not respect a "fixed width" column when other column are specified in %. This is a browser error but happens. A workaround is to insert a transparent image (e.g. you want a 200 pixel column, you insert a 200 x 4 pixel transparent image).
Another thing: when percent size are used, a correct browser must normalize to 100%, e.g. if you have 3 columns, 40% 60% 40% it must normalize i.e. render them as (about) 30 40 30 (same ratio, sum 100). Some browsers don't. So this may be another thing you should correct.
I think these are the common problems, with a bit of patience you will solve............
