Text around a table

Threaded View
I am fairly new to actually developing sites, though I have been
hosting various "pre-developed" sites for years. Anyway, one thing is
driving me nuts. I find very nice "templates" to start with when
creating my pages. But, I often run in to this same issue. The page is
simply a table, centered, with various text of different sizes in the
single columned table.

I'd like to add menu items, or perhaps adsense to the left and right of
the table. But, be it in dreamweaver or golive, when I try to enter
text to the left side of the table, it gets inserted above. When I try
to enter the text on the right it gets stuck on the bottom. How do I
insert code to the sides of a table?

Try to stay away from templates using fixed-size centered tables for
layout. After all, this is the 21st century.

Someone posted a "Golive" site for review recently. The HTML it builds
was pure crap. (I'm trying to be polite.) Dreamweaver, in the hands of
an experienced developer can do rather well.

If you don't want to spend a bit of time learning how to write HTML with
a text editor, have a look at NVu, a rather good little tool for

For Windows, I like Crimson Editor. This is an editor, not a WYSIWYDG

Why not look at some templates that show two- and three-column layouts
(and do not use tables)? For example:
