The article shows the techniques of using CSS in various situations including using style sheets instead of tables in designing a Web site. “There is a common misconception that CSS layout techniques are incapable of producing complex page layouts. While it is true that tables generally provide more flexibility, I will show you that complex layouts are quite possible with CSS,” the article states.
The article also tackles the different types of browsers and how they react to Web sites that use CSS instead of tables. “What you give up in absolute control over layout in every browser you gain back in increased accessibility and more useful documents,” says the author.
The author then writes the same Web site in CSS and then with tables, showing the code examples for each and explaining the differences. You can read the full article from Apple’s Developer Connection Web site.
