Hour 12. Designing Your Page Layout Usin... > Turning Your Table into Layers

Turning Your Table into Layers

During Hour 14, “Using 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 modern browser, 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

1.
Select the table.

2.
Select the Convert Tables to Layers command from the Convert submenu 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 12.15.

Figure 12.15. The Convert Tables to Layers dialog box creates a layer for every table cell.
