A little while ago, I’ve just completed a spectacular, four-column, semi-liquid layout without a single table in the markup what so ever. It is entirely semantic, utterly accessible, incredibly lean, visually stunning…and a disaster in only the one browser that 95% of the population uses. Internet Explorer for Windows. As this is my first major success with CSS-based design, this is nothing short of maddening.
As a compromise, I’m going to re-code the whole thing using a large scale table for basic positioning. With a few aces up my sleeve, I hope to preserve most of the accessibility features. Here’s hoping. :)
