    Exclamation Presentation 0f text. Poetry in fact.

    It has been resolved. Using a suitable background image in keeping with the theme of the text.

    This helpful solution came from Fisher, a fellow poster.

    Still open for suggestions though for Little Boy Blue

    I have been tidying up my website and I am generally happy with it, but I have not presented the two poems (Little Boy Blue and Do you remember an inn.) in a satisfactory manner.

    Any help would be welcome. My artistic talents are limited to knowing what I like after I see it. I do not have much creative ability. Any guidance would be welcome to this Philistine.

    You might move the poem to the center. A bigger font would help.

    I'm surprised someone as sophisticated as you is using tables to position this, however.

    Yes. The two poetry pages were pinched from my neice. I have never gor around to altering them. One of the reasons for the tidy up. It's not the coding that I find difficult, but the presentation. I hate tables, but the whole site was put together by several people over a longish time. Some of it before CSS was popular.

    I was wondering whether to just use plain text or whether to present them on a scroll or something. I don't want them to look 'corny'.
    or contrived.

    I have removed the tables and cobbled the pages using divs. I still would like some help artistically as to how to present the poems on the pages.

    use "Home Sweet Home" in my signature,
