    Internet Explorer Better Coding

    Hi,

    I have successfully converted my departments website to valid XHTML 1.0 and CSS. However, i am still using tables for most of the formatting of the page. Is there a better way of doing things? Bearing in mind that i still require the page to look reasonable in 4.x browsers.

    The website is at : http://www.cyber.rdg.ac.uk/.

    Cheers,

    Richard Sherwood

    It is near impossible to have a tableless layout in NS4.

    It is hard to efficiently create one in IE/Win (but most nowadays are made to render in IE, but are relatively simplistic).

    More complicated layouts are only feasible in Mozilla and Opera typically.

    It will work in Konqueror too if it works in Opera/Mozilla.

    That's nice to know, though whenever I use Linux I use Mozilla, so I'm not too familiar with Konqueror's level of support with.... well anything.

    Hmm, I am pleasantly surprised with Konqueror right now. It is displaying my XHTML 1.1 tableless pages exactly the way they should be displayed.

    Konqueror support for CSS 1 & 2 and (X)HTML is excellent,and it has good support for DOM stuff too.

    I knew that you would like it,I was also very pleasantly surprised when I used it the first time.

    Mozilla is excellent, but I wouldn't recommend Opera because it does not fully support Javascript and does not support XSLT at all.

    Konqueror is the browser application in the KDE Linux desktop.
