I learned CSS about 4 years ago the first time, hated it, and never saw the benefit...
I was hooked...on tables.
Lovely, warm, easy, nested, convoluted tables. After a few edits, validation wasn't even an option.
With the help of Nick_W, papabaer, DrDoc, and others I have changed my life with CSS. I am now lighter, stronger, and faster with my code.
I am oft tempted by my former addiction, and have even slipped in instances. Please just remember...one day you are back on tables...the next you have been coding <font> tags daily with 100k of html and are trashing the W3C for not "understanding". Don't let it happend to you.
This has been a public service announcement.
If you think you are someone you know has a problem...please keep coming back to this forum.
There is help. We can give you tutorials.
I love the idea of 100% CSS and where I can I do. I do have a need for tables sometime, take for example at the moment I have to do a user feedback survey with radio buttons and tick boxes. I tried to use Guru Nick’s example
But I spent a large proportion of Friday buggering around with it to no real avail so a marriage of tables and CSS is the way this particular page is going to go along with a tag to make is accessible:
description="This table is for layout man! Leave me alone, I tried really hard. If you can show me how to do it or even do it for me I will gladly use no tables. My other site uses no tables…."
Just try it. You don't even need those extra worthless close tags. Use CSS... if you don't mind an eternity burning in hell!
I've gotta a lot of thanks to give to my CSS support group here, including NickW SuzyUK, DrDoc and all the others.
<Shadow, get off that table now!> </papa spank!>

But you can make all the columns reach all the way down the page ... there are several ways to do it. For a demo of one, go to [positioniseverything.net...]
My name is fshagan, and I've been off tables for about three days.
