Ready or not, CSS is taking over

As the web develops HTML is being phased out and we're witnessing a lot of new ways of presenting content. One of the most powerful features of new websites is certainly the display of content using CSS.

While browsing the A List Apart website I stumbled upon two excellent articles: CSS Swag: Multi-Column Lists and Introducing the CSS3 Multi-Column Module. Both are tutorials that target the modern web developer and introduce some very good code that you can use to build upon.

I think it's time to let go of that soon-to-be archaic HTML-only code and give your works a boost by mastering CSS. If you're reading this and thinking: "What about my tables wise guy?" than I suggest you take a look at Throwing Tables Out the Window as well as other articles at Stop Design. Keep in mind that these are the folks behing the new Blogger templates, they know their stuff :)

Heh funny, I just wrote something about CSS in a blog recently.

Still as I see it, CSS is the future no doubt about it, tables and basically HTML is soon to be ditch and replaced by XHTML and all that. And we are in that transitional period currently, leading all to Web 2.0 stuff.

Having said all that, CSS still has it drawbacks mainly on how each browser decides to interpret the CSS rules. IE comes to mind. Force to spend hours tweaking CSS code to get it work on every browser is no fun, but in the end is part of the job.

CSS is the hot topic :)

The "browser factor" will always be there, but for the most part both IE and Firefox have done a good job at supporting most standards, Firefox even more as I've seen.
