    Rounded Corners

    chattanewbee Level 1
      I have a problem when given too many choices. Is it better to do layouts using tables or div tags?
      Currently I'm using tables; but think div tags are the new way to go. I see alot of sites with what looks like tables with rounded corners. How do I get the rounded corners?
      I'm open to using div tags. Just don't know what difference it makes.
      I don't want my site to look rigid with angled tables...

          I believe there is a way thru CSS to make rounded corners, although I have
          never used that method. You can insert a background image with rounded
          corners to accomplish what you are looking to do.

          And you are better off rolling up your sleeves to learn to use div tags with
          CSS.

              The old school method used a 3 x 3 Table and 9 image slices. The modern
              method uses CSS styled divisions.

              Another approach is to wrap content inside a box like so:

                It's a shame CSS3 rounded corners aren't supported in IE.

                  Internet Explorer needs some major upgrades if you ask me, but I know that Firefox and Safari both work on windows (and mac, lol) if it was a OS issue.
