CSS based pages

Postby dsockrider » Fri Dec 16, 2005 12:23 pm

I understand why it's good to use completely CSS based pages.

In the past I've mainly used CSS for text formatting. Do you have any tips/links on how to create CSS 'tables' completely from CSS?

For example on http://www.nuengr.unl.edu/current/studyabroad.shtml is it ok to use tables to format complex tables or is it possible to create a page like this completely based on CSS?

I'm just not sure how to create multiple columns and rows with large background colored areas without using tables.

You can use tables inside the content of your pages. We're not expecting everyone to be able to build their content using only CSS.
It's possible using just divs, spans and css... but for what you're doing it'd probably end up taking more xhtml than if you just used tables. If you wanted to build it in css the first 'column' would have to be a fixed or % based width.

But I would categorize most of the data on that page as tabular.... so go right ahead and use tables.
