CSS Promise vs. Reality: How Do They Compare?

Mark Newhouse addresses this question in his new article at Digital Web, Cascading Style Sheets, Promise vs. Reality, and a Look to the Future. Mark covers many important areas, including tables vs. CSS layouts, separating style and content, visual control, accessibility, leaner markup, forward compatibility, cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility, site maintenance, creativity and learning, and helpful links. This is an article not to be missed.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is this month’s theme at Digital Web with eye-stopping, CSS-inspired cover art by Christopher Schmitt. So stay tuned for more on CSS all month at Digital Web. They have a mailing list so you can stay informed of their latest, too—the right sidebar on every page has an "update me" box to submit your email address.
