Default Is Your Website Old School? 5 Reasons To Redesign With CSS

Do cascading style sheets work better?

"Tables-based HTML websites are like the fax machine. At one time tables were the best way to render information on the Web. But like curled paper and fading ink, tables left something to be desired. Designers were constrained by tables that allowed data to be rendered only in tabular form."

Uh? You can use style sheets (CSS) with tables just fine. They are not mutally exclusive.

I would be interested in a poll for those who hand code (text editor, Dreamweaver or whatever) their sites rather than using a template or free builders. Do you use tables, absolute positioning or liquid positioning (with CSS)?

I use either tables or absolute. I have gone pretty much back to tables. I find it quicker and less prone to cross browser problems when there are multiple elements or long pages. I would really like to know if you use absolute postioning in long (eg 2,500 px) columns with different types of content in the different columns how you get the bottom edges to line up in different browsers.

Good article. I am still not very good at CSS, but use it more than I used to.
