    Table or CSS


    How many of you use Tables or CSS?

    I use tables because I have had only bad experiences trying to get CSS to look right on different browsers. Plus everything I ready tells me of the trouble CSS will cause. Last I have seen many sites that use CSS and they are messed up so bad I can't read them. Of course I use CSS for fonts, but that is about it.

    Hi Mark,

    You're in the same spot I was maybe a month ago. I asked the same question (if you do a search you'd probably find that thread). My advice is stick with tables for now. Maybe at some point in the distant future CSS positioning will render layout with tables obsolete, but that day is not today. So now I'm using CSS for some things for which it works reasonably well, e.g. text properties like you, and certain other things like TD background color.

    My site has tons of 'em. I even got it to look right enough (about 99%) in netscape.
