Tables vs CSS

Today I had a really interesting conversation with my former WebDesign teacher (Virginia Green). Whenever I took her class, one of the things that was emphasized the most was that we should use tables to organize our content. It turns out that, after reading a lot on the subject, she found out that the main way to dictate the appearence of your website should be done by CSS (cascading style sheets). The use of a main table is not even necessary. Instead, you can use regular div tags and then style it using the sytlesheet.

    Wow, this still sounds like jibberish to me, even after working on websites with Dreamweaver. I have seen the terms CSS, stylesheets and div tag but don’t know what they mean, so I am staying away from them. Maybe it will be part of the next step in my mastery of webdesign. I look forward to seeing your webpage tomorrow in class!
