This post is wrong on so many levels - at no time in the forseeable future will "everyone stop using IE". Period. Yes, v6 does have a truckload of problems, but since it is the single browser with the largest audience, attention should be paid to development/design with IE in mind. Any professional developer will agree with that or it will cost him. With v7 knocking on your door, you can expect the crowd to get larger, not smaller, so keep that in mind as well.cpanelnick said:And as soon as everyone stops using IE and any old browser, I'm sure some more of these things will be quite possible, however unrealistic While 1997 sounds like you are going a bit overboard, we do have to make sure older browsers work. As for tables, checkout quirksmode.org for the very long list of div bugs that IE has (http://www.quirksmode.org/bugreports/archives/explorer_windows/index.html to start, http://www.positioniseverything.net/index.php is another favorite of mine.). Tables are still unavoidable, and render faster in a lot of cases.
I didn't realize there was a standard for using fieldsets in labels, must have missed that rfc , also searched google for "fieldsets and labels standard."
Tables can be avoided if you have the time and experience. Also, I don't believe tables ever render faster than CSS. The people that code should never touch the front of the application. The people that design the front end should never touch the back of the application. O how I do wish the cpanel developers would adhere to that.
I like cpanel. I use it dispite its many quirks and problems. The front-end, however, is the ugliest, most ancient piece of junk anywhere. It's a shame that when someone posts such valuable input that it's summarily dismissed like this.
