“Floats are a hackish layout device”
Maybe some of you can back me up on this, but I’d much rather see CSS tables implemented first, before generated content. Floats have only ever been a hackish way to layout a web page; we need something more intelligent, something that can say “yes please, I really would like column a to be as high as column b” and have it stick. Are you with me?
Dave’s sentiment summarises and resolves the points in an unwritten rant of mine about CSS so effortlessly that I wonder if there’s any point in finishing and publishing it.
