Just got this from that thread on DW.
Still do I want spent time learning CSS?
I'm not a web designer. Only have one little site which I just change little things once in a while:Edit by moderator to add: Big bulletts
at Adobe Forums - Dreamweaver.
am not here to debate because to be honest there is no debate between the old and the new. CSS is very powerful and yes browsers do render it different at times. However, what ever time it takes to fix any issues with CSS is most certainly faster then writing old school html. As far as IE goes...IE6 is in the way out and more and more large sites are not even supporting IE6 anymore (me included) ....even youtube!! http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/07/14/youtube-will-be-next-to-kiss-ie6-support-go
odbye/ ....now if youtube is dropping IE6, a website that millions visit weekly...then what does that say about the daily web designer. As far as IE8... one simple line of code in the header of the page fixes any issues and forces the page to only render in IE7 and when you are ready to have IE8 support then simply remove the line.
Insert this meta tag into the head of your html and pow...your page will only render in IE7 even if the end user is using IE8...like magic.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7">
Kevin...again with all do respect to the direction you want to take your skills. CSS is here...it is powerful and not as hard to learn as you may think or fear. Don't listen to the negatives. There are negatives with every type of coding, however what ever negatives there are in CSS they outweighs any reason to code old school.
