I'm in the process of converting my site to CSS but have concern with pages where I have been using HTML code for the tables on .cfm pages. I utilize Cold Fusion pages to handle database files. What are my options? I could use a little direction on this. Many thanx. :?:

CSS Table Support

Shouldn't be a problem... if you are using cfm to process data from a DB and the data is meant to be displayed in tabular form, using tables is perfectly acceptable. I use asp to do the same thing... what I usually do is setup a style sheet for tables that I need to display...setting all my display, size properties etc for each table... then
Call that style sheet on any page that has a table
then setup the table in the asp page like this for example
<table summary="credits" class="credits">
then run the asp code and close the table

hope that helps

CSS Table Support

Hi rmFred,
Thank you so much for your reply. Any chance of viewing one of your pages or some sample code that might give me a better idea of what you are referring to? :Innocent
