css should be it's own forum
With all the hype these days about finally meeting CSS specs and designing without tables, I think this topic needs more focus. What do you think?

i disagree, there shouldn't be a need for a forum just for css.

However, the traffic on that board between the 3 topics really doesn't (IMnsHO) justify splitting the topics at all. If the HTML/JS/CSS board ever gets to the level of the PHP board, then it might become an issue. As it stands, the combination neatly concatenates 'client side' web development in one central location, which in and of itself could be seen as a boon to users.

Being that I am newer than most here, my input hardly matters... BUT... I think the combo of HTML/JS/CSS is perfect for its own forum. At least for me, I use one, I use them all so taking CSS out and giving it its own forum is taking away from the rest. Simply speaking, the client side stuff goes hand and hand.
Until the ability to stop using html, js and css in a single line of code (which would be no time soon, lol) I think CSS is fine where it is.

I guee my main reasoning for this is not stupid css questions about syntax and font colors, but I mean layout with CSS. Which is a HUGE and very important topic right now. In 2 years tables will only be used to store tabular data, so I think most of us need to get on the ball about this.

If there is enough postings to warrant a seperate forum then it will be created. Currently there are not enough CSS postings to warrant making it a seperate forum.

When you take a hard look at CSS...it's really quite simple and there aren't that many unique questions relating specifically to it. Sure there's alot of "why doesn't this work", or "how do I do this", but there are rarely any questions that are unique and pure CSS. Usually the fundamental questions like ("How do I do columns?", "How does a float work?") have been answered in many different places, so those topics would quickly get old. And most other topics require a mix of html and css, which would do better in the general dhtml forum anyways since it's not a strict css issue.
