View Full Version : Table Size - pixels or percentage

Hi there,

I'm fairly new to designing web pages and have a few questions. I will post each separately so not to create confusion. Please keep in mind, as you can tell from my username, I have no clue. :D

When you use tables in your web, is it better to set the size using pixels or percentage?

Ooooops! Sorry wrong forum. See I messed up already!

Pixels, pixels!
I hate it when websites are incompatible with my stupidly high screen resolution because they are using percentages which screws up a pixel-dependent layout.

Oh! thank you. I had them in pixels but just wanted to be sure.

I some times use both, like if i make a side navigation bar i use pixels so it will be set for the contents side i use percentages, that way the nav bar is always the right size, and the contents are stretched to fit the rest of the screen, because like me i have high rez, and some still have 600 x 800 so no matter what size the screen is, it will always look good :)
