Update - May 31, 2003: It's been over a year since I wrote this and a lot has changed, this post about web standards better reflects by current view.
This article assumes a basic knowledge of web standards and languages, including HTML, XHTML, and most importantly Cascading Style Sheets. You don't have to be an expert, but I'm assuming you at least know what they are (if you don't, start here).
I'm in the early stage of planning a redesign of actsofvolition.com. Plans include a series of minor refinements and, most significantly, a move from ColdFusion to PHP for the programming. What I haven't yet decided for the redesign, is what formatting standards to use. Should I stay with the tried and true HTML tables, or should I take the leap into the emerging world of Cascading Style Sheets?
