Oh, I stumble across it from time to time... but I've got a rather large
collection of bookmarks to looks for help. Thanks for that.

Well, I just read most of the debate on css & tables... and I think it
can be done.  I am already stumbling on some design issues which are
absolutely ridiculous in css... for example, I haven't understood or
figured out why a <div id="whatever"> refuses to shrink the bottom
boundary no matter what directions it is given without any apparent
reason.  I have checkd inheritance, !important, nesting, clear, inline,
etc. and nothing does it. But I have already filled columns from mysql
wich css and it looks and works just fine.
Besides, it's a challenge. ;-)
