Hour 8. Create a Table to Aid Page Layout > Turn Your Table into Layers

Turn Your Table into Layers

During Hour 9, "Use Dynamic HTML and Layers," you will use layers to position objects on a Web page. Layers allow absolute placement of objects on the page but require a recent browser version such as Internet Explorer 4.0 or later or Netscape 4.0 or later. Dreamweaver converts a table into a group of layers. To convert a table into layers, do the following:

  1. Select the table.

  2. Select the Convert Tables to Layers command from the Layout Mode sub-menu under the Modify menu. The keyboard shortcut for this command is Ctrl+F6. (Did you notice that there's also a command to convert layers to a table?)

  3. The Convert Tables to Layers dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 8.11.

  4. You'll explore the properties controlled by the check boxes in the Convert Tables to Layers dialog box in the next hour. For now, accept the defaults and click OK.
