    Layers and PHP/SQL ?

    Hi is there any problems with layers and PHP/SQL ?

    I am currently learning PHP/SQl and plan to make a content management system for a site I designed in layers

    So what should I be aware of ?

    I understand when you use PHP/Sql yuo might say throw the results out in table rows.. i.,e a catalogue list

    Could this be done in php/sql or does it have to be tables ?

    Am I making sense ?

    IF you mean layers as in html entities, the only problem is the standard problems you'd find with layers and cross browser compatibility, but php itself doesnt bring in any additional problems.

    PHP/MySQL is a Server Side language, the only problem with php would be with the web server you are using (Apache, IIS, Enterprise, etc) not with the browsers.

    In other hand, as dibby said layers belongs to HTML, a client side language

    Server side languages never bring up any incompatibilities not already present in client side languages.

    While the popular way to output database information is in a table, it doesn't need to be.

    To output information all you need to do is this

    <? echo $variablename ?>

    That can be in a div tag, in an image tag, in a table, in a title tag, wherever you like. The PHP doesn't care.
