I am wearing my a techie hat today as I write this, but as a web designer it is vitally important to keep up with internet technology trends.
One area currently receiving some attention is the development of web sites that are laid out not using HTML tables but rely solely on CSS ( cascading style sheets). There are pros and cons for both layout approaches but some sites really lend themselves to the new CSS approach.
Take blogs .. most blogs (including this one) are defined entirely with CSS code..not a table tag in sight.
We currently have a site in production for a local St Louis author who wishes to have a professional blog developed for his “opinions” and are creating the site using CSS layout.
