I am redesigning a web page that runs to some 1800 pages consisting mostly of tables to show data. (Hey, there may be better ways of doing it than tables, but what the hell?)
There is no better way to make a table than to use the tool that is designed to make them, tables.
I have tried converting the original pages from HTML formatting to CSS, but it is hard and frustrating work, ultimately doomed to failure IMHO. I may as well start at square one with a new layout.
You can at least not have inline styles as in your code, hive those off to the css in the head or otside css linked file.
What I want to know is this: how can I apply particular attributes to columns rather than rows, or can't I, or is there a next best fix?
You might have to study col and colgroup:
Or if you want low tech, it is really simple, you simply class all the cells in each col and say what colour background you want in each cell:
Hiya. Thanks for that. Pretty much what I suspected. Just wanted confirmation really. It is going to be a hard slog, but I am a total convert to CSS and think it will be worth the effort.
The inline style info is there thanks to FrontPage and will be removed. Thanks for reminding me though.
