If I remember correctly (we seem to have been going around the houses for
ages on this topic) , the issue was a 5 col layout that had equal lengths.
Dead easy in CSS and much tidier than tables. This smacks of an argument
that raged for some while on WebProWorld - bj will no doubt remember it
well - where one contributor ranted (yes, ranted) about how much easier an
creative tables were than CSS. After a year or so, the same contributor did
a volte face and is now totally converted to the CSS cause. Main reason - he
took th etime to understand the difference in approach and how to use CSS.
The folks who have tried to assist you in this know what they are about and
are very knowledgeable about both table and css layout. No need to scorn -
read an learn my friend.
