Solved Text failure with Table format

Post by Hellfirelily on September 2nd 2010, 4:58 am

Now, I've seen it done. I tried my hand to recreate it, but it doesn't seem to work properly. Basically, everything lines up as far as image table, and footer but the text moves outside of the table's lines. I was wondering if there is a way to limit the width of the text to fit into the table. Here is the example.

Code:
[table background="http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af30/Reklaw_Asiah/kaine2.png" style="padding:5px"][tr][td][size=9][color=white][b]Classes & Skills[/b]

[b]Engineer[/b]
[b]Description:[/b] An engineer is a professional practitioner of engineering, concerned with applying scientific knowledge, mathematics and ingenuity to develop solutions for technical problems. Engineers design materials, structures, machines and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, safety and cost.
[b]Skills:[/b] Skilled with Engineering equipment.

[b]Medical Officer[/b]
[b]Description:[/b] Medic is a general term for a person involved in medicine, especially emergency or first-response medicine. Medics have an intimate knowledge of the human anatomy and what it can or can not tolerate.
[b]Skills:[/b] Skilled with Medical Equipment.[/color][/size][/td][/tr][/table]

Example:

I fudged by cropping a small square of the image to use as the background image. I used border code for the bars on the ends. There're several variables you can play with. (color, size)

The problem is with your background image. It has transparent ends! About 55px on the left and 63px on the right.

Another way would be to make another td cell on the left and right sides of the existing cell.

Well, I didn't want to post the whole thing, but the top and bottom are like that to match up with the header and footer. Like this:


I'm basically just trying to line up this text within the table. But if thats not possible, then I'll just have to ask the person who I saw doing it how they do it.
