      I use a Mac. The photos in Alex's report do force wrapping in
      Firefox. They are too big.

      I use Graphic Converter to resize all photos to consistent sizes -
      either 300 x 500 or 500 x 300 pixels. That does away with the wrapping.

        Alex,

        I know this is a very confusing issue with so many browsers, screens, etc. One way to check on how your report will look on various screens is to go to http://www.screen-resolution.com/ and insert the URL for the test file and check it out at 1024. I'm "assuming" this will work with a MAC as well as a PC.

        Thanks for working so hard on this. As a rule of thumb, I personally never use a picture (or combination of pictures) bigger than 800. It saves my sanity (a bit).

        Happy New Year!
        Kathy

        Kathy,
        I'm a bit at loss here, I see no side scrolling on my screen when I view the report online. I re-sized the pictures to fit the 1024 format. The top two are a total width of 1024 and the lower are a total of 960. Am I seeing a different screen because I use a Mac? Should I omit the pictures all together? Again I apologize for the discrepancy and I am happy to work it out. Thanks.

            I would like to thank you all for your input. I have to admit that creating HTML was a foreign language to me a few months ago, and I am only barely getting it now. The page at http://www.screen-resolution.com/ doesn't seem to want to work for me, but I found that I can easily set my NVU screen to 1024, and I see what you mean about the scrolling. Now I can build the HTML in the size that it's viewed in. I will repost the report here to be sure its alright before posting to the BGT site again. As soon as I can figure out how to paste text alongside my pictures, I think I will be able to create much better looking reports. I can put that inquiry in the help group page if I don't figure it out soon. Thanks again to everyone, it's great to know that there are people out there to help me out with this.
