    Aligning text to a background when resolution is changed


    I have my text aligned to the background when the resolution is 1024x768 but
    if a user has 800x600 the text does not line up anymore. My code is: Style
    = "Position:Absolute;Left:435;Top:95".

    What should I use to align the text?

    Is there a way to determine the users resolution settings and open the appropriate
    page?

    What I am tring to do is an org chart:

    [ Title ]
    [ Name ]
    Arrow Arrow Arrow
    [ Title ] [ Title ] [ Title ]
    [ Name ] [ Name ] [ Name ]


    switch to 800x600 it looks like this:

    [ Ti]tle
    [ Na]me
    Arrow Arrow Arrow
    [ Ti]tle [ Ti]tle [ Ti]tle
    [ Na]me [ Na]me [ Na]me


    Thanks

    Rick

    You should also look at using CSS to specify the foreground and background
    colors plus margins, paddings, and borders for each org chart element.

    BTW, I find liquid tables still to be the most reliable way to control complex
    positioning at any resolution and in any browser.
