    100% is 100%, no matter what screen resolution.

    Won't it just take up 80% of screen regardless of size meaning a longer line showing on 1024 x 728 resolution than on 800 x 600?

    no i did a test on my other comp and set the screen at 800x600 and the width 80% and it fit fine but then i tried the 100% and it went of screen

    i will keep it at 80%

    Ya 100% fits all. But I am exactly like you I prefer a bit of space on the side and the content centered.

    I can't duplicate the results. Are you sure you are closing tags properly? What browser? Firefox does show things a bit differently.

    What might help you see where your tables are is to make border=1, and if you have more than one, color them differently.

    Try this:

    <center> <body leftmargin="2" topmargin="2" marginwidth="2" marginheight="2">
    <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
    stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
