I know of no better place to ask. This may not be strictly a PHP issue,
I am busting my hump trying to format rather large input pages with CSS

managed to do some pages with CSS, but I feel like I am shooting myself
in the foot or somewhere...
Perhaps I am too demanding. I know that with tables, the formatting is
ridiculously fast.
Any thoughts, observations or recommendations?


You have a choice:

1. Learn css and do it right;

2. Use tables.

If you are in a time pinch, number 2 will suffice enough to get it past a client (besides, what do they know anyway). But number 1 is really the best way to go. Never use tables to hold a layout together.

I know, I have clients who *require* me to use tables for their layout and I must bite my lip and comply. But, more and more clients are listening to reason as they discover it really is better way to go.
