obligatory web design post

The backlash against CSS layouts! Read all about it.

An Objective Look at Table Based vs. CSS Based Design

Communist radicals got a bad rap in the 20th century because they wanted to take over the world and brainwash everybody. More efficient, they said. More humane, they claimed. A better way to run things, so they thought.

These days, the rebel youth aren’t so busy admiring Marx as they are giving each other tutorials on how to use XHTML Strict. Bravely battling JavaScript menus and eradicating layout tables, admonishing us to “please think of the children” and design our pages so they’re compatible with the handhelds of next century. Same conformist thinking, same lousy outcome.

Damn, that's good crazy!
