I have never heard of that before. That is very interesting. My issue has always been this:
I create a table with say 2 rows and 4 columns...2 hours later AFTER I have already configured it properly (cellpadding,colors etc)..I find that I need to create within the ONE of the columns another table that contains 4 rows...
So within DW, I can quickly do that in seconds....
If I were to use CSS, I take it that I would be using DIV to create the tables? I guess I've never figured out how I would be able to quickly do what I need to do above using CSS....
But then again I guess it comes down to experience like you said, I just don't have all that much experience with CSS other than using it for font manipulation....
If you are aware of any good websites on CSS or books, please let me know...
Also, are there any conflicts with the new HTML 5.0 and CSS?
Or even the current HTML 4.0?
