Table widths

Ensuring that the table width on your page is a percentage will ensure the table sits nicely within the content area.  If the table is wider than the content area, the user may have to scroll left and right to view the full width of the table.

Making the table a maximum of 100% will make sure that the table will always fit inside the content area of the site.

The image below shows a table which is wider than the content area, meaning that the user would have to scroll left and right to view all the information held inside the table.

Bad example - the table is wider than the content area meaning the user may have to scroll left and right to view the content within the table

The image below shows the table which has the width set to be 98% of the content area, meaning it will fit inside the content area so the user does not have to scroll left or right to view the content held within the table.

Good example - the table sits inside the content area without the user having to scroll left or right to view the content held within the table

    Many schools and trusts are working on ways to ensure that home-school communications are provided in all of the languages required by their EAL community so that their parents and students can be informed, included and aware of all that is happening within the wider organisation.
