I am evaluating an application at work. Being a bit of a purist, I don't think tags should be used if they don't need to be. So when I saw the following chunk from a table I got a bit peeved.
Code HTML4Strict:
<tr>
  <td class="gridViewRow" style="border-color:CornflowerBlue;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;">
   <div style="width:120px;text-align:center;">001950</div>
  </td><td class="gridViewRow" style="border-color:CornflowerBlue;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;">
    <div style="width:120px;text-align:center;">004075</div>
   </td><td class="gridViewRow" style="border-color:CornflowerBlue;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;">
    <div style="width:120px;text-align:center;">004654</div>
   </td><td class="gridViewRow" style="border-color:CornflowerBlue;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;">
    <div style="width:120px;text-align:center;">005536</div>
   </td><td class="gridViewRow" style="border-color:CornflowerBlue;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;">
    <div style="width:120px;text-align:center;">007761</div>
   </td>
</tr>
Is this normal or should I ask to see the control code? If I get the code, not too familar with asp.net, how far up the creek will I be?
