I know in a perfect world where IE did not exist this woul dbe less of an issue but...
The company I work for are looking to move away from table based design to pure XHTML/CSS. The issue comes up that the company use a standard 5 column template for each site they produce (there's a heavy CMS behind the page) and 'hide' columns when they are not needed in site design.
I've recommend the use of three xhtml templates, left col, right col and flanking cols (so different xhtml different CSS) but my boss is insisting on one XHTML template with 3 different CSS docs to reflect the three layouts.
Which approach would the users of sitepoints recommend?
Thanks in advance,
