Now disregard completely the color scheme, I’m entirely new to developing any type of web layout. Minor background in php/mysql and starting to get into layouts, I’ve always heard tables are being phased out and it’s better to not use them at all. I created that page for myself, to see the issues, I use css for coloring and styling, I use the tables for definitive structure, and percentage use rather than pixels. I tried firefox and IE, both come out fine, they validate, I can change the size of the browser and it works fine, yet I don’t want to be frowned upon for using tables. So the question comes down to why is it inferior, and how can I start eliminating them from my layouts if need be. I also noticed vbulletins default layout is loaded with tables, and they are to my knowledge the most popular bulletin board system out there, which made me question it even more.
Thanks for any input you can provide.
