Unexpected text wrapping in frontpage


G

Guest

I have a web that has top/left/bottom borders. In the main body of a page I
put in text. The text always wraps at the width of the longest word in the
text I type in. While I'm in the frontpage "normal" tab, the text looks
fine, but when I preview it, the text wraps into a tall thin column of text
that is the width of the longest word in the text. Any ideas what's wrong?
I've checked all the settings I can find and I can't seem to understand
what's going on???

Switch to code view and add an opening <html> tag at the very top of the
page.
It's missing

Steve,

I added the <html> tag but it didn't make any difference. Check out the page:
http://www.greecetandccamp.com/test.htm

Here is the entire html for the page test.htm (as seen by frontpage):

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default">
</head>

<body background="_images/camp_logo_big.jpg" topmargin="2" leftmargin="10"
marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"
bgcolor="#FFFFFF" link="#663300" vlink="#CC6600" alink="#FF8800"
style="float: left">

</body>
</html>

Steve,

I found it. I was missing a </table> tag at the end of the left border file
and the table was just being continued into the main page content. Trouble
is the width of the left border table was only 200 pixels wide.

Goes to show you you have to look at the final source that gets constructed
by FP and not the html for each componet as shown in FP.

Thanks for the lead......

Glad you found the problem.
Actually you need to look at the final "source" regardless of what you
author with.

I live in code view. Always have.
