    My first tableless CSS layout
    I spent a great deal of time learning how to manipulate CSS into making a layout. I have always been a bit skeptical about this whole "css" tabless phase we have been going through, but as designer I really wanted to learn it. So here is my first all CSS page

    Anyone else make an all css design?

    Thanks! I have to fix some CSS for stupid IE for PC. I'm having some troubles getting the padding to work correctly. It renders how I want in every browser but IE for PC, which of course happens to be the most popular browser :closed:

    Yeah IE bites for CSS support Luckily it's market share is still going down, but it's still over 90%

    Yeah, its to bad really. I'm almost done integrating it with Word Press now. That was a lot harder than expected.

    I'm glad firefox is getting more attention now though; hopefully if they keep releasing quality browsers Mozilla can steal some of IE's thunder.

    It actually was pretty tough, but well worth it. The final is at

    For some reason I cannot view your website. The work firewall is probably blocking it. In any case, about the Windows IE thing. Why not just have a blurb somewhere like "this webpage designed for Mozilla or similar browsers if you don' have it, here's a link".

    I seem to remember a lot of sites used to do this when they were designed exclusively on Netscape.

    Thats odd. There is really no content on there that should be blocked. Strange. You are going here right?

    You need to add "display:inline;" to elements with double padding in IE.

    Using images directly for navigation in CSS defeats the purpose. Use an unordered list, and set the background image for each list item as the appropriate image. This way the page is actually accessible - a user will be given a list of navigation should the css rendering fail.

    Yeah, I realized this a bit ago. I haven't changed the navigation images because I am going to make them into roll overs, but I've run out of time over the past few weeks. I was just happy to render anything on my first time.
