David,

Thank you for your reply.

I think you mean page layout - I was asking about tables for data. I've since been able to muddle through.

Regards,

Grant

Is anyone able to offer suggestions as to how demonstrate to the user that overflow content has been truncated, like this (see attachment).

I guess the question for me is whether I understand the question???

Set width in %, min-width in pixels, and max-width in em on the outermost page wrapper. Avoid use of position absolute and position fixed. Set the page blocks in percent. Set p with margin left/right in percent and margin top/bottom in em or pixels. That will give you desktop. high d pi laptop, and both tablets [ horiz 1024 and vertical 768].

For mobile handsets you need to add a device width meta-tag. Kick the first media query in at around 560 and then another at 480 -- this will give you vertical and horizontal iPhone as well as low through high end Android. If you need to hit IE/6 then it needs to be hacked for doubling the margins and doing weird stuff to the height such as with vertical lists.

A rough layout using these principles: <http://chelseacreekstudio.com/me.html>

Best,
