Subject [greenstone-users] Left justifying document text
Hello Katherine,

Thank you for the advice which worked for the search page but not for the formatting of the document text.

The problem is that I need to limit the width of that table/cell to 740 but when I use say :

<table width=740><tr><td>[Text]</td></tr></table>

the table still expands to fill the width of the screen. Is there somewhere else which may be influencing things?
I only need to fix this to cater for 800x600 users in addition to higher resolution users...and because I've left justified everything else !

Regards,
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan

For the text, you need to specify a DocumentText format statement - the
default is

<center><table width=537><tr><td>[Text]</td></tr></table>
</center>

change it to e.g.
format DocumentText "[Text]"

For the search form, in macros/query.dm, edit the

oops

The requested page could not be found. Please use your browsers 'back' button or the above home button to return to the Greenstone Digital Library. macro, and
remove <center> tags from around

<center>
_queryform_
</center>

Regards,
Katherine Don
