    Should I go CSS or tables?

    About 7 years ago, I used to be very up-to-date on HTML. As soon as I stopped paying attention, the web went in a different direction and left me behind. Well, I am coding again but using old school methods. I'm trying to learn the new methods.

    I've been into what Zeldman has been saying (http://www.zeldman.com), but I can't see anyone doing layouts in CSS like people used to in tables.

    Examples:
    http://www.icack.com/test.html
    http://www.felicialoud.com/index.html

    These are my sites. The code is super-sloppy. The tables are insanely nested. If I could make compliant code that is less complicated through CSS that would match these pages, I would do it.

    Can it be done?
    Can you show me a CSS page with images layed out similar to mine?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hello.

    Fair points you have made. There is a compromise where you use tables for 'structure' and css for 'format'. Worth exploring.

    Example sites with complex, css-only layouts -

    http://glish.com/css/
    http://glish.com/css/noah.asp (very good one)

    Thumbs up

    No questions, definitely, unequivocally yes... you want to go with CSS at all cost!!!

    I took a brief gander at your aforementioned sites and saw nothing that CSS (with a little dedicated study = desire) would NOT handle gracefully and then some.

    Once you've got it the beauty of CSS is with the equivalent of waving a wand you can change the whole presentation of all of your sites pages (color(s), fonts, etc.) just by merely making changes to a master CSS layout sheet if you will.

    The most bang for your buck will in addition to the aforementioned glish) be to head to google.com (or whatever your search preference) and enter various phrases such as tableless css or css+tableless, or css design, etc., etc.

    I use to live and die with tables now tables (while still used occassionally to insert a picture here or there) are the after thought as much as possible.
