html table help please

Postby tygermon » October 12th, 2009, 2:53 am

I honestly don't know if it's just every computer I've used but it's the same on mine, my sister's and my grandparent's. My sis and grandparents use firefox and I use both IE and google chrome and it looks the same on all web browsers I've used.

I have been trying again and again, searching for some kind of solution but my search has been fruitless and I think I"ve only been making my problem worse. The problem's on my character's page:

http://greysjourney.smackjeeves.com/characters

I had wanted the table to be like this:
_____________________
|img | profile info here |
|here| profile info here |
|img | profile info here |
|here| profile info here |
|____________________|
| History here |
|____________________|
|img | profile info here |
|here| profile info here |
|img | profile info here |
|here| profile info here |
|____________________|
| History here |
|____________________|
etc.etc.etc.

But instead the profile info is squished and the character image has enough space for a party and then some. Can someone give me some clue as to what I typed in wrong in the html box? I have tried putting <td width="150"> for the image's part of the table and I've tried putting "550" for the profile info's space but it just makes it tweak. It makes the space around the image about two and a half times larger. I also tried typing out a new table in notepad and saving it as a web page to test it before I fix the smackjeeves version. It worked, I replaced the html but it came out the same as before. It's driving me nuts and I apologize for the way I explained it, I thought it would be complicated if I tried to explain it in words and they do say a picture's worth a thousand of em' XD And with that, here's my codeing:

Code: Select all

<b>Personality:</b> Being without her mother, she is quite scared of just about everything she isn't familiar with. She is nice once you get to know her but she isn't generally playful. She is very interested in learning anything about her species. She is also interested in meeting her father and asking him why he left them.

<b>History:</b> Grey was born in a cave high in the rocky mountians. She had never seen or heard of her father because he left them before she was born. Her mother, Naværnii, had taught her many things while growing up; being of two dragon years she was the proper age to be taught the gift of flight. One day while her mother was searching for food, something had started injuring Naværnii; being in her mother's pouch, she could not see what was making her mother strain to stay in flight. Being the curious two year old that she was, she peered her head out of the pouch only to fall out, landing on her leg and braking it. She could only watch from the hill she landed on as her mother was falling out of the sky and a creature Grey had never seen before roared as it carried three smaller two-legged creatures on its back toward where her mother was landing. They kept shooting rocks from sticks they were holding at Naværnii and she crash-landed a bit up the mountians. Grey hid in the tall grass hoping her mother was alright, drifting off to sleep.

<b>Name:</b> York<br>
<b>Gender:</b> Male<br>
<b>age:</b> 4 years<br>
<b>species:</b> <a href="http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/424/baitheninfogn3.png" target="_blank">Mountian Baithen</a><br>
<b>Height:</b> 3' 2"<br>
<b>Weight:</b> 104 lbs<br>
<b>Personality:</b> York is mainly the get told what to do and he'll do it without a fight, moan or groan kind of guy. Most of the time he generally has a bored look on his face. He always tries to avoid a fight and if he gets into one unintentionally, he doesn't fight back. He is a little over protective of his younger sister Pernod as she was the only one to have affection for him. He isn't one to joke around but doesn't care if others play pranks or make fun of him. He is not afraid to show every emotion except anger. He bottles his anger inside of him because he is frightened of his and everyone else's anger. But, bottling up one's anger isn't good in the long run now is it?

</TD>
<TR><TD colspan="2">

<b>History:</b> York was the runt of the litter when he was born but strangely enough, he was the only of his litter to survive. Due to Selene and Crater getting rather old to have any more pups, he was born of the second to last litter they had. York was always the outcast and always being made fun of by all the other Baithen in his kin due to the fact that being a male, he was supposed to have tusks yet he was born without them and they never grew in as he aged. He had always taken all the jokes and ridicule everyone else put him through with out ever complaining. Before his three brothers and sister passed away to illness, they would play-fight with each other and York would always sit and watch them. He would never join in their fights, he would just observe and study them. His mother and father found this aspect of him rather odd and they have had their eye on him sense he was born. His sister Pernod was born when he was two years old. When she was allowed to leave the birthing den, he was the first one she ran up to and she licked him on the nose. They have had an unbreakable bond ever sense. She normally follows him where ever he goes if he's not on sentry duty.

<b>Height:</b> 3' 4"<br>
<b>Weight:</b> 117 lbs<br>
<b>Personality:</b> Crater is kind and understanding but at times he can be a hard-ass. Over the years he has become tired and just wants to be left alone. If he ever hears of any news related to Furrians he moves the pack to a new den wether or not they have pups in the birthing den.

</TD>
<TR><TD colspan="2">

<b>History:</b> Crater was born into a small pack with just his mother, father, and two siblings. They lived high up in the mountains until winter came and food became more scarce. His father decided to move them down the mountain in a desperate search for food. They hadn't found much food until they were almost all the way off the mountain. The strange thing was, when they found their prey, it was trapped by weird, low growing trees with no leaves on them and all the trees were connected to each other, not allowing the prey to pass it. Crater was getting food one day when a couple of odd looking creatures that were walking on two legs spotted him. They started shooting rocks at him with large sticks. One of the blasts hit his right ear. While running from them through the forest, he got caught in a trap they had set long ago. It snapped up and was bitting his left rear foot. In a desperate attempt to survive, he let the metal creature take his foot so he could escape and call for help. <br><br>

A couple years later, his small family found another pack of Baithen to the eastern mountains. His family was offered to join theirs but they declined. Within that pack was a female Baithen who spent most of her days rolling around in the flowers and chasing rabbits. Her name was Selene and Crater was breath taken when he saw her. He had offered her to join his family. She asked her father if she could go and she was given permission. More lost Baithen joined their kin as time passed and with time passing came the time when Crater's parents decided it was time for him to take his birthright as Lord of the pack. A year later, his parents were nowhere to be found and Crater declared himself Lord of the pack and Selene, Lady. One of his brothers had gotten jealous that his parents chose Crater instead of him so he *tasseled him for the title of Lord. The battle didn't last long though Crater had lost his right saber, he had ensured his title and they have ruled the pack without question ever sense. <br><br>

*Tassel: The Baithen's version of a duel to the death or surrender. The winner's and loser's conditions are spoken before it begins and if there is no witnesses, than there can be no tassel.

<TR><TD colspan="2">

<b>History:</b> Naværnii was born in the Dragon City. Being of royal blood, she didn't only learn how to hunt and defend herself, but she learned of politics, the universe and of all the world's inhabitants. Unfortunately, having her studies so wide spread, she didn't learn as much as she could have if she just focused on a couple of subjects. When she became of age, she was assigned, as all other dragons who live in the city, to a mate by the council. Naværnii refused the male dragon that was assigned to her and left the city (Luckily before Exodus destroyed it). <br><br>

Naværnii found life outside the city to be rather difficult. Hunting in training with your master and hunting on your own were two different experiences. When you couldn't catch your dinner, your master was always there to correct your mistakes, but not any more. For many decades she struggled and was often urged to go back to the city. She had always put aside those urges, determined not to live by the council's rules, if she was going to have a mate, she was going to chose him. <br><br>

She finally found another dragon. Though she recognized him as the mixed breed, she decided to stay with him to have a better chance to survive. After a few years of staying with Exodus, she fell in love with him. They stayed together for many years. They tried to have kittens but every time they had a litter, every one of them would die almost immediately after birth, they were starting to loose hope. They were expecting a litter once more but just a few days before they were due to arrive, Exodus disappeared. Naværnii called to him night and day, searched for him every chance she got but she never found her mate again. Two years later she had fallen to Furrian poachers and left her only surviving kitten to fend for herself.

<b>Height:</b> 2' 1"<br>
<b>Weight:</b> 62 lbs<br>
<b>Personality:</b> Pernod is a happy-go-lucky type and she really loves to play. She has a rather short attention span when it comes to something she's bored with and will chase anything that moves or is shiny. Being a female she is not aloud to accompany her brother on his scouting missions and have felt useless when it comes to her kin. She loves her family and tries everything she can to help. She absolutely loves her older brother York and hopes that one day the other members of the pack will come to love him too.

<b>History:</b> Pernod was born of the last litter from Crater and Selene's great kin. As the last born, she was the runt of the litter and was thought not to live past the winter moons. When she was old enough to leave the birthing den, the first family member she saw was her older brother York. She hasn't ever known what drove her to him but she felt a sort of sibling relationship ever sense she saw him and has always been by his side ever sense. She has always been there to cheer him up or just to relieve the loneliness he has felt ever sense he was born. Pernod's always been a happy-go-lucky sort of Baithen and often cheers up the mood where ever she goes. She loves making new friends, whether they are nice or not. As she has been getting older, she has noticed the growing aggression toward her brother by the other kin members. She is trying her best to make them stop but has failed again and again.

He had been told that his father got killed defending their nest from a creature called a dragon. Coal had never seen a dragon and always wanted to see one to ask them why they killed his father. He was two months old when they heard loud cries from a creature unfamiliar to them. Razor, his older brother kept a watchful eye out for the strange creature that could be makeing the loud cries. To them it souded like a Baithen's howl but it wasn't. Something had scarred his mother and brother enough to make their mother tell Razor to take his siblings out the back way of the cave. As Coal, Razor and their siblings exited the back of the cave, they heard their mother's last cries of pain and the same cries they had heard before. Coal thought it was the fabled Dragons and he wanted to go look. While Razor grabbed his little brother, his other siblings scattered throughout the forest in fear of the loud noises.

<b>Personality:</b> Razor is quite a negative person. He will take on any threat or challenge that he comes accross. He hates seeing people take pitty on themselves or others and sees the world as a kill or be killed place. He tries to take care of his younger brother but he is learning that being a parent is a very taxing job.

</TD>
<TR><TD colspan="2">

<b>History:</b> Razor was hatched when his mother was still quite young. She and her new mate were having their first litter together. Because they had nested in an area plentiful in prey, it was also plentiful in preditors. Many they weren't aware of when they nested there. They lost all their offspring but Razor. He was the only smart one when the preditors came to their den. He hid instead of being curious. He was afraid of everything till he was three months old when he decided he would stop being scared and he would help protect his pride as the first born son.<br><br>

Razor had just turned seven months old when the Furrians had sailed accross the continents and arrived on the eastern side of their untouched island. To build their dens they had to drive away all the wild life out of their territories, cut down all the trees and burn away all the grass. The hunters found their den and they shot at them. Razor's father distracted the Furrians while him and his mother fled, never seeing his father again. They kept running and running. They didn't want to ever see those two legged creatures ever again.<br><br>

After many new moons of traveling, they found another pride of Septras. In it, Razor's mother found a new mate and they continue traveling west. They had settled in a cave surrounded by thick jungle. His mother laid six eggs which hatched to be four sisters and two brothers. His mother was facinated with the twolegged's language so she had named each of her offspring after words in their tounge. Razor and his father had left to go find food one day. They had just made a kill and were going to bring it back to their nest. A dragon saw them and decided he wanted the kill for itself so it started attacking Razor and his father. Razor tried to help his father defend their kill but he was bitten on the back and tossed against a tree like a rag doll; his father had been killed. Razor made it back to his den without the kill and had told his story to his mother.<br><br>

Not long after the death of his father, Razor and his mother heard cries that sounded identical to the cries the magic sticks made that the new two legged creatures carry with them. Razor stayed up all night keeping watch for the creatures, knowing it was his duty and responsibility to protect their pride as the eldest male. When they came, Razor knew they had no intentions of allowing any of them to survive. He woke his mother and younger siblings so they could escape but his mother told him to protect his siblings and escape the back way out of their den. Razor obeyed his mother dispite his feelings of already loosing his father and stepfather. They had exited the cavern when they heard the last cries of their mother. His sibling Coal had gotten curious of the sound and went back into the cave while the other hatchlings scattered in fear of it. Razor grabbed Coal but could not find the rest of his younger siblings. He ran just as they had before, leaving their den, territory and more family members behind them.

<TR><TD colspan="2">

<b>History:</b> Exodus was an experimentation created by the dragons of the council. The council have control of almost every aspect of the dragon species. They themselves are dragons but are often driven to do despicable things. When the Pouched Dragon breed had started to die off, they decided to mix blood lines which had never been done before. They bred a Pouched Dragon with a War Dragon, another dieing dragon specie. Exodus was the offspring of that experiment and because mixing the bloodlines is an unforgivable sin, that is what he was first known by, Sin.<br><br>

He was built husky and strong like the War Dragon but long and quick as the Pouched Dragon. The elders trained him sense the day he was born how to hunt his prey whatever it may be and how to defend himself from attackers and he became a great warrior. When he reached breeding age the council declined him a member to be paired with as he was never meant to be and his blood should not be mixed any more than it already has. As the years passed, his instincts started to get the better of him. Sin could not take suppressing his instincts any longer and in a fit of rage he destroyed half the dragon city and killed many dragons that tried to oppose him. He then fled from the city. From that day forward, the dragon council decided that he was banished from the dragon city, his new name would be Exodus as a mark of his banishment, and if any dragon were to kill Exodus and bring his body back to the city he or she would then be declared a hero and offered a seat at the council, the highest honor for a dragon living in the city.<br><br>
 
The newly dubbed Exodus didn't mind his life in exile. Though his training under the masters had stopped he continued to practice what he was taught every day. Though he had gotten away from their rules, he had not gained what he had wanted and was denied, a mate. Only a couple years had passed before he found another dragon, Naværnii. She was a pure blood Pouched Dragon and of royal blood no less. Both of them being alone, they decided to stay together as a group of dragons stands a better chance of surviving than being alone. Eventually they fell in love and were expecting kittens. <br><br>

While away from Naværnii and out hunting, he was ambushed by a group of dragons from the city. Exodus had been badly injured and many of his attackers fled. He knew there would be more attacks from the city and he didn't want to put his mate or their unborn children at risk. They had finally found his hiding place and he knew the dragons he left alive would tell their tale so he left and never saw his mate again...
