    Question WYSIWYG designing without tables using CSS?

    My guess is it does not exist...
    But... it doesnt hurt to ask.

    Anyone know of a WYSIWYG html editor that allows for designing without tables using CSS? That is... designing tables that aren't actually tables... as this site's popular book explains?

    That would be a killer app!

    According to W3C specification, <table>ís may still be used, but for their intended purpose; ie, the tabular display of related data. Not layouts.

    Yes, it would be a killer-app. No, Iíve not heard of one, either existing or in the works.

    But hey, learning CSS is reasonably easy. Even the browser quirks can be got round with minimum effort. Start here! The Externals page is a great resource.
    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

    Dreamweaver works great for WYSIWYG CSS layouts. And team it up with Topstyle Pro 3 and you have a good solution.

    Yeah, Dreamweaver MX in WYSIWYG mode can do that, bummer is it uses absolute positioning but hey, you can't have everything
