Tables are passe. CSS is here!

Eric Meyer writes that the Microsoft web site has been redesigned to use a mostly CSS based design as compared to the old table based one. The subsequent page size decrease was 75%+!!

There is no denying the fact that CSS driven web page layouts are the future. All those web designers who still use Dreamweaver and Golive, wake up, and give us web programmers cleaner web pages to work on! We have become tired of those hundreds of table tags and spacers to get a web page look just right.

As an aside, both this website as well as my company’s , are in totally table less CSS based designs.

Now if only those uninformed clients stop demanding that we support NS4+ or IE4+ browsers for the web apps. 😞
