My poem dedicated to CSS Positioned Div’s

4 Jan

css positioned divs may be
the wave of thefuture of web design,
but learning it
and unlearning table based design
is making my ass become enflamed
with frustration
and my bowels jiggle
with confusion

Thank you

    That’s very entertaining! I have no idea what it means but it makes you sound both smart and funny. Unfortunately it also makes you sound a little like a diarrhea sufferer.

      Basically, most web sites have all the elements layed out using tables, the borders of wich are invisible. The future of web design eliminates these tables in favor of divs. Divs are sort of like tables but more powerful, but also require a lot more coding. I dunno..its very frustrating to learn.

        There’s gotta be a better way! Something like Etch-a-sketch! You just use a light pen. Let me guess, you’d be the guy writing the code that controls the pen so in essence…you’re just screwed.
        Is this part of your “something to fall back on” or are you building your own website er wutt?

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s still using tables (although I do throw a div in here and there for good measure).

        Why do you think so?
        I love CSS for controlling fonts, that’s for sure. Being able to make a change in one area and have a global effect is the best.

        One word: consistency.
        A well-designed site using tables for positioning instead of CSS Positioned divs will look perfect on a multitude of browsers, in many versions. However, the intricate positioning required by CSS divs is reliant on CSS2, and not all browsers render CSS2 the same.
        As a result, a site you worked very hard to allign with css divs might look totally, horribly wrong in different browsers.
        CSS is great for fonts I agree. Thats all it should be used for 😀

    It takes skills to do css. Of which you do not have.
