I seen a webpage at work today that was created using about
20 layers. I thought that was not the correct way to do it i
thought tables was the go. The webpage is only targeting IE 6 but
it is collapsing when viewed on a 17in monitor but displays ok on a
19inch monitor. Before i say to much at work i just wanted to make
sure that this was not the correct way of constructing the web page
and is also not the industry standard to building web pages.
Well there really isnt a right or wrong per se, only whats
right or wrong for that site. But, yeah layers are not really a
great idea in that quantity. they are absolutely positioned, and
this can create display issue. When you say collapsing...can you
provide a link to have a look?
As for tables, they too are fine if used correctly. The way
most sites are built these days is DIVs and CSS, using tables for
specific placing, not for overall layout.
