Replace Tables with CSS Positioning?

There are more sites, tutorials, and articles about doing just that. One of the latest is WDVL’s Toss out your Tables! CSS is the scene! by Charlie Morris.

But what about cross-browser support, bugs, workarounds, older browsers not being able to render the page properly? Page 2 of the article addresses that, too. Lots of good thoughts here with links to more information, workaround charts, and more. Worth considering.’s CSS section has lots of annotated links to good CSS tutorials, the W3C pages on CSS, bugs and workarounds, CSS editors, and more, too.
