I am having trouble adjusting the width of my form. I have followed the instructions to set the width in Form Appearance and I checked to make sure that my text fields had a size limit as well - but the form width never appears to change - no matter what my settings are. I have tried setting the width in % as well as in pixels. Still no change.

I am careful to generate new HTML after each round of edits and paste the new html.

Using Dreamweaver 8 and I am making a "test" form with one of each type of field (text, radio buttons, check boxes)

Thanks for any help.

The problem is the question on your form:

"Your comment or question:"

You specified a width of 200 characters for this box. This is extremely long and stretches the form to fit it's width regardless of what is specified for the overall form width. I changed the width to 20 for you, and you'll see a much better result.
