    Convert existing tabled website to CSS

    Hello,

    My PHP CMS generates a webpage with a tabled structure. I would like to catch the web2.0 revolution and be able to present this page in (if possible) pure CSS.

    Please check a current demo at:

    http://www.4kbilisim.com

    If possible, view the page source and advice if this page can be presented in CSS. Thank you very much.

    Nearly anything is possible in CSS, and yes you could easily convert this page to CSS. Search the web for "CSS 3 column layout" and you'll find many articles on how to achieve the layout you have on that page with CSS. If you run into any roadblocks feel free to post and we'll try to help you.

    Yes, that site has a very nice structure and plenty of CSS already in use. It's not the CSS you are looking at implementing, it's semantic, table-less layouts over style. The basis for any web page comes from it's main content, the bit that is described by the html of the page. In this case the big fuax-par comes from the fact that tables are being used for layout, and this is a big semantic "Web Standards" no no because tables are meant for one thing... tabular data. Site layout is not tabular data.

    Check out this link for a nice intro into semantics and why not to use a tables for layout.
