Just read, "Designing Without Tables Using CSS" by Dan Shafer. Great book, but I have a page that consist of 5 colums and 10 rows. I've tried to figure out how I can display the information WITHOUT tables and can't seem to come up with the solution. Any ideas?

Table Question

Can we see the page?

If it's data that should be in a table, then stick with it. If it's purely being used for presentational purposes, then we'll try to find a way around it.

Having said that, it can sometimes be easier (x-browser) to just use a table, if it's that big!

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Table Question

I'm inside a gov. facility, which will not allow anyone through the firewall. The table info is Name, Phone, Location, Building, Manager. I guess it's easier to display this in a table.

Thanks

Yeah that does sound like data that should come in a table.
