OK, since I have been criticized for still using Tables for my page layouts, can somebody provide links or other information regarding the use of DIVs, SPAN, and CSS?

I have always had trouble understanding these. I tried learning from W3Schools.com, however, I find that their information is sketchy at best, and their examples could be a lot better. I need something that is clear, consise, in-depth and complete, cross-browser compatible, in plain english, that a novice (which I certainly am) can learn from and use. The more examples and code snippets, the better.

I think I understand the general conceot of the DIVs, but not the practical use, particularly when it involves positioning, and spaceing, ie: How to position DIVs side by side with a blank space inbetween, etc...?

Thanks for all your help...

  • While those criticisms are generally valid, they're also misplaced. Divs and spans aren't going to make Office Depot clip art packages look good, and as long as that's all you're putting in, that's all you're ever going to get out regardless of the coding conventions you adopt.
