if I understand the question correctly, you use rowspan when you want to make a long(vertical) cell in a column(or columns). the rowspan would equal the number of rows next to the long cell.

not sure if this is any help... :\

yeah, your question is kinda vague, but MAYBE to clarify, rowspan is kinda self explanitory, it spans the number of rows you tell it to, eg:
```--------------------
|          |            |
| cell1   |  spans  |
|          |  two      |
|          |  rows    |
---------             |
|          |            |
|          |            |
| cell2   |            |
|          |            |
|          |            |
---------------------

```

eh, it's the best ascii drawing i could make...but i hope that clarifies

I think the actual question here is the placement of the row span tag, and if I remember correctly from my HTML class, you put it at the top in the first <td> then every row after it is joined... but not 100% sure.

hey, thx fellas, it was so long since i used it, i think i get it, in the case of that ascii drawing it would be ? ? ?
```<table>
<tr>
<td>cell1</td>
<td rowspan=2> span 2 rows</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>cell 2 </td>
</tr>
</table>

```

???
i want to have a site in a month so i was messing around lycos.uk with making non forum pages with my forum, http://members.lycos...ormsprotest.php
i can't seem to see where i am going wrong, the overall headers and footers are longer then the table wich i have @ 600px, does ne1 know the satndard size for a page
sorry for all the newbish questions, i am frustrated and its 2 in the morning here.
o yea, would ne1 be able to tell me if they use ib forums,if it might be easier to use that as a start for a site. thx in advance

yep, the table code looks good, tEf.

in the other page, the headers and footers are set to 100%, and the forum section is set to 70% surrounded by two 15% sections. you'd need to decide whether you want the left/right columns around your forum to extend up to your header, or get rid of them.

standard width would be 600-800px wide, I think. though as monitors and resolutions get bigger, that has started to change. best to keep it tight, though. most people are happy to scroll down, but hate to scroll across...

looks like the forums are phpBB, not invision.

they're easy to edit; and very easy to work with. if I can do it, anybody can! I just set one up for my church, and was able to change the header image, some of the buttons, and mess with the fonts in very little time. there are also a lot of resources for iB; skins and dev sets, etc.

cool.

put the alignment tags in the TD tag:

```<td width="15%" valign="bottom" align="center" border="0"><a href="http://www.mysql.com"><img src="mysqllogo.png" ></a></td>
```

see if that helps.
