    resolved [RESOLVED] alignment of text in table columns

    How do you align parts of text but not the whole thing? for example if my source code is
    <tr><td>Bobby Rompel</td></tr>
    How do I make it so that the "Bobby" is aligned at the left of the column and "Rompel" at the right?

    Also if I have something like
    <input type="textbox" name="hm">

    how do I make it span the entire width of the page. I tried using something like size="100%" but it doesnt work. And if I type size="100" then it'll occuppy exactly 100 spaces, then what is the screen size is bigger or smaller?

    Question

    Thanks, it does work.
    What if I have some text already on a line and I want the text box to span the rest of the line, can that be done?

    So if I want to do something like
    blahblahblah<input type="text" >
    what would I do?

    Also, can this technique also be applied to text areas, so that I can have a text area span the entire width of a table or page?

    Yes, it should work on <textarea>s too.

    Try this.
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
       "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html><head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Script-Type" content="text/javascript">
    <title></title>
    <style type="text/css">
    
    label span {
      float: left;
    }
    
    span.maxAvailWidth {
      margin-left: 7em;
      display: block;
      width:auto;
      float: none;
      background-color: #f00;
    }
    span.maxAvailWidth input {
      width: 95.9%;
    }
    
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <form action="#"><div>
    <label><span>label</span>
    <span class="maxAvailWidth"><input type="text"></span></label>
    </div></form>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    a simple way would be to do this:

    <div align="left">Bobby</div> <div align="right">Rompel</div>

    It wont validate with XHTML Strict though
