    So I'm taking this course: Interactivity for the Web, and one of the books we had to get was CSS Zen Garden. It's an awesome book, and anyone interested in CSS should get it. We've got an assignment, which is to take the source of csszengarden.com and create our own CSS for it. There have been a bunch of people to do this, and was just wondering if anyone has done it before. If not, try it out. It's a lot of fun. On the site, there are hundreds of versions of the same source, but different CSS, and none look alike. There's even one with the same source, and same CSS, but in IE6, it will look like a completely different site that in other browsers using CSS hacks. Check it out!

    I need to work on my css skills, this stuff is pretty neat. i really don't use much css right now besides the basics. I should get rid of using tables and go towards css though.

    they are a pain in the ass sometimes too, but I never really looked into anything different. I thought oh well tables are fine for me, who cares about CSS. But now after seeing the csszengarden site and then reading that article, i am amazed.

    Tables have never been standard for design. People have just used them for design because it was a great way for object placement.

    Tables were all I really knew how to do. I was good with them too. Can mentally create a layout via tables and it'll come out perfect the first time I save and preview. It was because of this I was a bit hesitant to move onto CSS-based layouts, however, one of my bosses I had back in '03 forced me to use X/HTML to design our websites. I have no problems creating CSS based layouts these days. :o

    :werd: I was going to post that. Can't remember where I read about it, but somewhere there was an article that showed how everything started by tables and gradually moved to CSS. It was pretty cool.

    CSS can get that way too, especially if you use containers the way you should.
