I have been toying with the idea of doing a <table>-less layouts involving tabular data, calendars, etc...

Recent threads have finally made me do it.  Let me know what you think.

When you turn off the styles, the calendar becomes pretty rough on the eyes, but still "accessible".

Same thing with the tabular data structure.

But, not knowing how the various types of accessibility applications work, I am guessing that the layout to an application trying to read it should work fairly well. Let me know if I am way off the mark with my thoughts.

If you want to respond off list, that if fine by me.

TIA


Sorry all, been a way from the list for a few weeks.  Here is another try at it.

Ok, revision #2

http://www.cmsws.com/examples/templates/div_cal_normal.php
http://www.cmsws.com/examples/templates/div_cal_daily.php
http://www.cmsws.com/examples/templates/div_cal_fancy.php

Truly their isn't much fancy about that last one.  Just a name...

Anyways, you will see that the <div> code is exactly the same between pages, but the layout is radically different because of the style in play...

I think this would be more useful then the others. With the first rendition, you had to break things on weeks/rows with the tables. I think this method is much simpler.

Input welcome.

Thanks.
