View Full Version : Help With CSS to Replace A Table

03-28-2006, 05:25 PM
I have been going thru my HTML and replacing the presentation elements of html (like the font tag) with CSS

But I am new to CSS so I'm kind of stuck here.

What I have is a table.

It consists of 3 columns.

The left column is an abbreviation. The center column is abbreviation written out and the right column is the definition

So it looks kind of like this

First Column--->Second Column--->Third Column
Abbrev-------->Spelled out------->Definition

Here's an example

NS------------>No Show---------->Make A reservation and fail to show up

I used a table for presentation

Is there anyway in CSS to do this WITHOUT a table?

I tried to do positioning but with the different number of words it never looks right

Any ideas?

That is truly a table, containing tabular data. This is the use to which tables were intended to be put, and there is no need to change it. The problem is with tables that are used to lay out the page.
