Default Alignment of ContentPlaceHolder


I am trying to mirror and learn a few things from the Wrox United examples in the Beg. ASP 2.0 book...when trying to make a master page on my own, I have a table as a header, a table as a side bar and I want a content place holder to align under header and to the right of the side bar. No matter what I do, if it is dragging or by CSS, I can't get it to line up where I want.

I had the same problem. I solved it the long hard way.
I purchased the Wrox Book, Beginning CSS Cascading Style Sheets for Web Design, by Richard York and spent 2 months reading and doing examples, from cover to cover.
Now, I have the same problems with layout on master or aspx pages, but can manipulate placement easily by creating controls with no css applied. Later, when I have everything
on a page that I want (controls) I use css style position relative or absolute as needed to place things exactly. Its a long slow process and there oughta be a better way. But until I hear of one, this is what I do.

This might not help...
I would suggest using the <div> tag instead of tables
Also if you are having trouble aligning your contentPlaceHolders on the page. You can control this by using a CSS. However I think your problem is you need to place your contentPlaceHolder in a <div> and then align the <div>
