    Question CSS controled layout

    Hi guys,

    I was thinking, if any of you new how to make effective css layout controls that would do good in all pages not just the static ones.

    I find using css for layout hard, because I can't correctly control the positioning of the elements in my document.

    Anyone into this?

    Hey Airnie,

    I've messed a little with the CSS web design, and I too have found it to be a little challenging.

    I do, however, like the benefits of being able to better control the page look.

    Check out this unique web site completely built in CSS..

    This guy did a great job. I really like the tree in the bottom right.

    Cheers.

    funny you should mention that site

    I know about the site you mentioned,

    it's pretty much the only site being posted in forums like these as an example of quality css usage

    I fully understand where css might be good, but tell me something

    would it be easy to make a forum like these css controlled? where you have element repetition, would it not be a problem, because you have to declare things like position in css as well

    I think I'll look into it a bit further

    Interesting...

    Havnen't thought about doing it that way before.

    There are a lot of elements to a web forum and that could be quite a challenge.

    I find CSS pretty useless aside from style tags. I don't use it much for positioning or layers. HTML seems to do a perfectly good job to me.

    I'm curious too about (effectively) using css for forum like designs. I think there is some confusion on how you are supposed to use css and what it is used for though.

    On one of my sites, I use css for the whole layout. If you look at the code you'll see a lot of table tags. The table tags are for "table data"...meaning it's more or less repetive information and thats when you use tables. All the main elements of the site are done with CSS. It wasn't to difficult and positioning isn't as hard as most people think it is.

    Oh, I don't know HOW I missed this one in my last post.

    BrainJar is also one of the best tutorial sites on the web. Simple, to-the-point, clean, and just plain good!

    I get very bad different CSS style tags. I do not have much use for this condition or layers. To HTML for me seems to work perfectly well. One of my sites, I use CSS for the entire layout. If you look at the code you see a lot of table tags. Table tag "table" data are for information and meaning more or less repetive Thats when you are using tables .. All the main elements of the site is done with CSS. It was not difficult and the situation as difficult as most people think it is not.
