Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Comparing table layout and CSS layout, part of XHTML and HTML Essential Training.
In this chapter, I present a complete web site for the purpose of demonstrating…the techniques covered in this course in the context of a real-world project.…The web site uses tables for layout.…Because this course is about XHTML and HTML and because it is not about CSS,…I chose to avoid CSS for the layout in order to show how to use XHTML for this purpose.…Keep in mind that this is not considered best practice in today's world.…Using CSS for layout is commonly considered a better choice, and I strongly urge…you to learn how to lay out your sites using CSS.…
On the other hand, understanding legacy technologies is generally a valuable…and practical pursuit,…if for no other reason than there is a lot of legacy technology out there and…you will likely encounter it in your work.…How often you encounter a legacy technology will depend on how popular that…technology was, or is, and how recently it became obsolete.…In the case of HTML table layouts, this has been a very popular technology, and…its obsolescence is relatively recent, and it's still in wide use today.…
