Hey would some one be able to check out http://www.carousel182.com/home.php . there seems to be a problem with the html which puts the iframe outside the table the iframe is the bit with the news in , on the main page. I looked throught the html and couldn't find the problem. Another strange thing is the website seems to work like it should (with the iframe inside the main table) on some computers i'v been on but not others

Could some1 please help?

Your HTML is very messy to say the last. I would first start identing your code, like so:

Code:
<table>
  <tr>
    <td></td>
  </tr>
</table>


Then get rid of the unnecessary <center> tags: they can usually be replaced with align="center" in the <td> tag.

Also make sure that all your <td>, <tr> and <table> tags are closed. That is most likely the problem.

Right now you still have a lot of nested <table> tags, so it would be helpful if you could replace the <center> tags with align="center" as I suggested earlier.

This doesn't look quite right:

Code:
   <tr class="content">


Where is the <td>?

BTW this isn't very "elegant" Wink

Code:
        <iframe height="500px" width="583px" frameborder="0" name="content" src="http://www.carousel182.com/news/?">Your              Browser Sucks</iframe>

Yes, "Your browser sucks".

You haven't changed the <center> tags yet, and you haven't fixed the problem with the missing <td> tag:

Code:
   <tr>
     <center>
     <!-- Template file for index_login.php IndexPage Login Hack by php@elitemaps.com -->


It's not possible to have any type of content inside a <tr> tag.

Your code's still a mess, carousel, and even if you never plan any changes or edits to your page, it may well be worth your while to clean it up before you run into other problems, such as having it break in newer or other browser versions you haven't tested.

I suggest running it thru an HTML validator. I tried the W3C's validator just to see what was up, and there were over 45 errors, including several that Daniel has already mentioned above but which you've obviously ignored.

Just wanted to add to verto's point: if you have clean, valid code in the first place (indented is a plus too - don't know how you find it easier to read without indentation! Smile), then you very rarely have the type of problems you had. In the long run it'll save you time, and you'll be able to proudly display a button on your page which says your HTML is valid Very Happy (although I'm not sure if iframe is even valid in some DTDs anymore... Question).

... and <td> tags don't go inside of the <tr>, the are contained by them. You don't do <tr <td>> you do <tr><td>. That's different. Wink
