How many of you use css(cascading style sheets) to design a website? I think it's 'cleaner' and easier to do it with css, but it has limitations towards a table of course.

I agree, css is the most elegant way to design a website. But look at this forum. Allthough they use css for design, the main body of the forum consists of tables. Not everyting can be done with css.

CSS is definately the future of webdesign and if you don't use it, you're a tad behind. Css is a very powerful tool that if used correctly can yield some amazing effects. here's something i put together really quick. http://vln.90megs.com this is nothing compared to some of the stuff that i've seen, there are some talented people out there that can go crazy with css

Your website seems to be offline. I can understand why you search for a better host than 90 megs.
I hope we will be able to give you a better service than 90 megs, btw.

Maybe you can help me with a problem in css. I'm trying to make a website with
a header (100% width)

a main body (100% width) consisting of
a left menu (150 width)
a main body (between left and right)
a right menu (150 width).

Untill here it works for me in css.

a footer (100% width).

The footer doesn't want to fit in a css design for me.

Yes I do use it and as mutch as I can. I personally found it really easy to learn compared to html/php etc as the syntax is pretty simple and there arent any where near as many bits to it.

Cascading Style Sheets
Astrolopitecos
I'ts very cool and very simple after reading about it Smile
I started to use CSS 2 weeks ago, and i can say it makes easier to do the site and change it Smile

U should try it just for the fun of it Wink Cool

I prefer using CSS cos' I change my mind quite often when it comes to templating Twisted Evil Anyway, I use Open Source CMS and all that, so CSS is unavoidable.

css rocks because you can change the look of your entire site without going through each page and its real handy for providing a printable version too. I use css all the time, the css sidebar extension for firefox is really handy too. Css is soo much simpler than html and you will be soo glad you learned how to use it in the long run.

I love the way that unlike with a html document you don't need any sort of start or finish to your stylesheet you can just start writing style declarations straight away.
boutolliz
it's a very important revolution, in web developping after javascript, and server-side programming languages, in Fact, you can change the entire appearence of you site without going through the script of each page, but you can change it dynamically, using PHP, for exemple, so you can change the color theme of you site by letting the visitor the choice to do it by a click, ... cool, a good work on it, can resolve many problems, good luck !

Since I just recently know how to use it for the last 3 or 4 months I can't imagine myself not using CSS now. It is the best thing I've ever learned as part of my webmistress skills. I won't go back to those <style></style> again.

obviously you have to use css to design your page. Unless you use full page flash animation:D

Are you getting CSS confused with HTML?

CSS can only be used to style pages in advanced and basic ways. People have been creating normal sites without it for years.

I always use CSS for my designs. It goes like... when I finished all the graphics for my page... I turn and make my CSS for the positioning...

Also CSS is a great help not only in HTML/PHP pages... but also in some scripts that allows you to modify it... take for example Wordpress... which is a very nice & flexible blogging script.

You've probably resolved this issue by now but just in case, if you'll post the page you're working on with the CSS or email it to me, I might can help.

Sure you can create a website without CSS.

But why??

All the mainstream browsers support it, and have for several versions.
It is much simpler to use than inline HTML formating.
It is more powerful than HTML formating.
You can reuse the CSS file, saving server space.
You can seperate the content from the layout, making it MUCH easier to maintain a large site.
It's pretty Very Happy

Not to say that you have to only use CSS. I like to combine CSS with tables. Just do whatever is simplest!

I do and my hobby is bitching about its limitations where overall layout is concerned. But when it comes to any sort of styling and formatting, I use CSS all the way-- just about the only thing inside my HTML tags are class and id elements.

Resurrected as part of a search of our oldest threads at Frihost - this one is #31 dated 27 April 2005. And was created by Williams_fan

Must say Website technology has come a long LONG way from when CSS was considered an optional advanced feature in Website design. Razz
