Old School vs. New School
Old school: build site entirely in HTML
Use tables to build “shelves” to put content (headers,navigation, images, footers)
Fixed width tables don’t translate well to other platforms(PDAs, cellphones, widescreen monitors)
Lots of code, often messy
New school: build site in HTML and CSS
HTML, which is just bare-bones content.
CSS, which provides format and layout.
Code is clean and lean
Use tables only for tabular data (row/column format:names and phone numbers, date and frequency)
