Hi Everyone,

I am creating a forum application, like this very forum. I think I can create the forum using CSS, with no tables - but should I use tables???? Forum applications, by their very nature display information in a tabular fashion. However, I think I can write the code without using tables.

For example, the area of each post that displays user name, number of posts, avatar etc. can be floated over to the left, with the main message area over to the right etc. etc.

What do people think??? I like the idea of an elegant CSS design, but are tables more appropriate in this instance???

Cheers!

Creating a forum application

It's not what you do it's the way that you do it.
So do it with STYLE

Thanks for the info. I like your site. Looks like you've done it already - written a forum without tables. Cool!

I'll let you know if I get anywhere with my little experiment!

Cheers,
