I was reading about the Web Design in general and came across an interview with Rob Weychert in designinterviews.com. Here he talked about various issues Web/Graphic design as any other web designer. But the best part of this interview is the section where he explained about the significance of CSS design and why it is so popular. There is nothing new he said, but the noticeable thing is how simply he explained it. It’s really a great read for those who wants to have the basics right!
â€œWhy do think CSS design is becoming so popular among web designers when tables are just as easy?â€
The benefits of coding this way are numerous. For one thing, using CSS for layout instead of tables is much more efficient. A single CSS file can control the look of an entire site, whereas using tables for layout requires an excess of repetitive, superfluous code. This not only increases a siteâ€™s collective file size exponentially, it makes it a lot more work to maintain. Even more important than making things easier for yourself, though, is making things easier for your siteâ€™s users, and web standards have that angle covered as well. For instance, when itâ€™s not cluttered by unnecessary presentational code like font tags and misused tables, properly semantic HTML is much more easily understood by search engines, mobile devices, and assistive technologies used by disabled people.
