You know, I'm sick at the moment. 101 temp. And I'm trying to get stuff done because even if I am sick, I want to start certain projects I have, but want to finish the old ones.
So my topic of ranting is CSS. I thought my idea was simple. It's a four section site. Header, which I put away in a include PHP file. Check. A sidebar and a main content box, not check. And a footer, check.
The side bar and main content are a PAIN in the ass with pure-CSS, especially if you want both to reach the end of the page and not look retarded. Yes, I know there are ways around it, one including making a div inside of a div, a div in it then another div next to it using the float properties. (The hell indeed)
I understand people like Divs, and always bitch, "TABLES AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE USED FOR THAT". Well neither are Divs the way I want apparently. Not to mention using the method I posted above, it looks horrid in IE, and a few other browsers I hear. My Solution?
I'm going with damned tables. I can be finished in less then 10 minutes and know it'll look good in every browser. I don't see the point in making everything more complex when I can just use tables and get the same point across with less code, and less pain. I love the people who go, "People who use tables now, aren't considered REAL web developers.".
I'll use both and take my leave.
edit: Btw. I'm using graphics for my site. So the "easy" ways google tells you aren't really what I want. Using negative margins and all that doesn't look good in all browsers.
