(Music playing.) Hi! I'm Bill Weinman and welcome to CSS Positioning Best Practices. In this course I'll show you how to use CSS positioning techniques instead of HTML tables to layout a webpage. The first part of this course is a brief review of CSS so that we have a good starting point. Then we'll discuss the different techniques used to position objects in a webpage using CSS instead of tables. The second part is a case study where we'll go through the process of creating a real website using CSS for all the formatting and positioning.
