Ok, getting a little confused......
Evey time I get to playing with web-coding, theres new complaints, new coding practices, new do's and don'ts, new contradictions of what came previously!
I am of the favour of tables for layout..... yet I am told that NOW it should all be done with CSS... the html (xhml ?), should have the content, the css should hace the affects..... ?
So how the hell am I meant to apply all the layouts I can have in tables, to a flamming CSS?
for example, I have several paragraphs of text, and several images. I want the layout as follows....
Whats more, I want it all FLOWING! I want it so the when the side of the browser window is dragged inwards, and the page gets smaller in the width, I want these elements to reposition!
(it appears unlike many designers, IU am one of the few that beleives and codes for a static head/nav system, and the main content should be sizeable and able to shift if the window size changes! None of this "ALL" should be centralised for me!).
I can alter the appearence of txt no problem... yet as soon as I start aattempting to apply positioning etc.... it is ignored!
Am I missing something?
I've looked on the net, and I cannopt find a tutorial, guide etc. that covers combining different element formatting techniques! I can find sites that do what I want, yet I can't grab the CSS file!
Any help or pointers would be great!
As would a VALID and JUSTIFIABLE reason why the CSS is better than the TABLE... ( I understand the time saving, the overall website affect, just not the layout side!)
