    I'm teaching my friend some web design stuff...whould I bother teaching CSS now?

    Right now I'm teaching my friend some basic web design techiniques and seeing as how CSS has become a huge part of web design...should I teach him stricly CSS for layouts or teach him tables and then teach him CSS? Any extra input on the issue would rock the face.

    CSS first. Much easier to learn a new habit, than to break an old one

    I have successfully taught XHTML and CSS in parallel to a set of degree students. CSS should be introduced as the standards from day one.

    You should really teach them CSS over tables although don't completely dismiss the concept just incase they struggle with the whole CSS format. It is much easier for some people to design in tables as they are probably familar with tables in Word and Excel.

    Definitely try CSS first tho...
