Default nav bar problems

hey folks,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem I having with a drop nav bar and a table.

I have created tables which automatically resize wit the window, eg:

    <td width=30%>
        <A href="index.html">
        <IMG alt="Click to return to the main page." src="../images/logo.gif">
    <td width=30%>

I want to place a nav bar directly under the banner image, but i dont know how to do this. At the moment, I am only able place the menu on the page in a static position. Here is the code for the nav bar:

function init() {

      // Get width of window, need to account for scrollbar width in Netscape.

      fullWidth = getWindowWidth() 
        - (isMinNS4 && getWindowHeight() < getPageHeight() ? 16 : 0);

       myNavBar1.moveTo(130, 109); //this defines the starting position of the menu. (horizontal start position, vertical start) 

if anyone could shed any light on this I would be really grateful - thank you!

Me again!

I was thinking after my last post, I didnt explain myself very well.
A better way to describe the problem I have is: how do you get the width of a column in an HTML table which is defined by percentage and not pixels?

I have a look in a couple of books i own, but there doesnt seem to a function to get the width of a column. Any ideas?

I am now working on the principle if i get the width of a column, I will then be able to work out the start point of the nav bar.

Again, any input and avice is gratefully recieved!
