Ok, currently I am using tables (upon tables, upon tables, etc.) for my site (www.subver.com). I want to update my site to look like this: http://www.subver.com/bored/subverwide.gif - It's not much of a change, but i'm going to try and do it all with CSS and XHTML instead of my choppy ass code that I have on my site right now.
I'm going to need your help with this though, what is the best way I should go about making this transformation from HTML + Tables to XHTML + CSS? Will it look exactly the same in all browsers? Should I still be using iFrames? I know the basics of CSS positioning and what-not, but I don't think I'm good enough to have it look good in all browsers and having all the code be correct. Any help would be really great. Thanks!

Going from tables to CSS... updating my site.

Ok I started redoing it. Can someone check out my code and tell me if I'm on the right track?: http://www.subver.com/xhtml (css: http://www.subver.com/xhtml/xhtml.css) - I only checked it in IE6 though. And it doesn't validate on w3 because "I was not able to extract a character encoding labeling from any of the valid sources for such information. Without encoding information it is impossible to validate the document."
(what's that mean?)
I WILL get this right!
Anyway thanks for all the help yet again Smile

Hi NHansen,
Try adding this to the head section of your page.<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

Is there any kind of program that lets you view pages using a bunch of different browsers? That'd rock.
