Yes, I know - we have had this conversation before, but I have a question--
I have recently started creating a new website. It's not expected to be complicated, interactive, Web 2.0, 3.0 whatever. I said I would start to learn CSS. I heeded all your admonitions that CSS is somehow "better" than tables. However, it doesn't seem to be so easy to learn. Not saying I can't learn it but it seems it will take longer than I really want. At this point, CSS seems far more complex than I need. Tables are easy to deal with. I am well enough versed in them to be able to get them to do all that I want done.
Question 1 - Why should I bother learning CSS when tables will do all I want my design to do? Who cares (except you guys!) how the site is constructed if the finished product looks the same?
Question 2 -- Last time around, all I was able to discern was that "CSS is better than Tables." I never did discover how better - or why better. Is this a case of "Ford is better than Chevy"? Or "apples are better than oranges"? Or are there some serious reasons why one should code in CSS rather than tables, other than your own personal preferences?
