Default line wrap when windowed

Can line wrapping be prevented when windowing {a table}?
{???by shrinking images and text???}
I'm only on page 63 (this may be way too early in the lessons/training to ask this {kind-of} question).

Every thing works as described.
Please advise.
Thanks, Tracey

When I window "The Cooking Place" from maximize, the first/top table line wraps (looks tacky).
There is a gap between the top of the page and the pizza image.
There is a gap between the bottom of pizza image the bottom of the table.
The text "The Cooking Place" is on 2 lines ("Place" is on the 2nd line) and the black and red stripe/band becomes black and red ... black and red (line wraps and appears to be 2 "lines" of black and red).
When maximized everything looks fine.

If I understand what you're asking, then yes: wrapping your content in a table or a <div> with a fixed width might fix your problem.

Rather than wrapping content to the next line, your browser will then display a horizontal scrollbar when the content doesn't fit the view port.

Just FYI: this book is almost 7 year old; centuries in the web world. Is there a reason why you're working with old technology and old books? The web has moved on quite a bit since then, so it's likely you'll find many out dated concepts.

If you're not tied to classic ASP or Dreamweaver, but instead want to learn modern web development, consider my book Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 in C# and VB.NET. The software that is used in the book is available for free from Microsoft, so no need to invest in expensive tools.
