    I haven't done any web design in a while and I know a lot of people don't like tables, but the easiest way I know of would be:

    <table width="300" border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
    <td colspan="2"><a href="URL"><img src="..."></a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><a href="URL"><img src="..."></a></td>
    <td><a href="URL"><img src="..."></a></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    You face not Malchezaar alone, but the legions he commands.

    If you are trying to get that font in there, then it has to be in image format, you can't format normal text like that. If you have those three images, post dimensions for them here and I'll try and help

    if you want to learn html you have to be willing to put in time, just like the rest of us did.

    tables are the best way to learn web layout for beginners

    If you're 8 years old and doing some "homepage for beginners" you can pass the course with tables. On the other hand if you're 18 and want to pass some "webdesign" course, you need to do it properly with CSS. CSS2 has been around for a decade or so, for total page layout control all the way from margins to columns. Using tables is considered to be the 'hack' way to do it.

    hi.

    notice i said 'tables are the best way to learn web layout for beginners', and not 'tables are the best way to create web layout'

    no need to get your pants in a bunch because im giving him advice on what would be easiest for him to learn. considering he's using an html developer kit (and provided by the school, my guess at least, means that it will probably be similar to using Word for designing a webpage

    Regardless of the status of my pants, it's still bad advice to tell people to use table hacks for layout. CSS is not much harder, and it is the correct way to do things.

    Tables should be used for layout only if you're aiming the web pages for browsers that are more than 10 years old or running on very limited embedded system.

    You are mad bro! na seriously you are correct. Tables should not be used for layout IN MOST CASES, depending on your objects and how they have to work 2gether it might work just as good with tables.

    Instead you should learn how to use <div> and css the result will be alot better and more dynamic... also tables can be used for ALOT of good stuff, dont flame tables, tables is doing its best to please you.

    That's why you'd use CSS. It can do things like scale based on browser window.


    Anyway, how people did it with tables is using percentile sizes instead of absolute pixels.
