I have a website that I began last year (and received some initial help with here in the Support Forum), but I decided to stop and pay a website builder to create the basic form of it, a template, in order to save me the time of learning all the necessary details of how to get the site to look like I wanted. I have so far had a problem understanding tables, how to apply them correctly in the HTML. After that was done then I could add all the content I needed to the template. The website builder, of course, immediately scrapped everything I had done til then instead of making small changes according to my wishes (much to my chagrin, as I liked my concept. Obviously we have different asthetic tastes (a big red flag I ignored when I first saw HIS homepage) and he tried to initially foist his tastes upon me but I put my foot down and we came to a compromise. ) But to his credit, he did give me some good information about making the website easy to use for visitors. But I digress…
On this template he has created (that I am basically happy with now and somewhat understand the details of) I can’t figure out how to bring in the margins of the “second content area” of each page. The text I am entering into the template causes the lines to be spread across the whole page and I think it is a bit unpleasant to the eye for reading. I’d like to bring them in oh, about 1-1/2 inches on each side but don’t know how to accomplish this the right way.
This page is a perfect example of what I’m referring to:
If you scroll down to the second content area, you can see what I’m talking about. I can’t ask the website builder to help me with this issue because he’s charged me an arm and a leg already and I can’t afford to pay for anymore of his time.
Also, a major consideration for me is to keep the website accessible to people with slow systems and dial-up modems, so I’m trying to keep things to a minimum.
If you can offer assistance, I would appreciate it very much!
