Theoretically this could still be done only with editing of the stylesheet. Of course, it's not that simple - Mozilla comes closest to decent browser support for that sort of radical change, and even it's not there yet. > Do you trust your designer to do all that and not mess up any of your > PHP code that's thrown in with the HTML? That's why you use templates... Actually, I think the idea behind what the previous poster was saying is that: a) with stylesheets they don't need to touch the HTML once they've finished with it (and handed it over to you for PHP work) b) you therefore won't need templates -- Mark Gallagher http://cyberfuddle.com/infinitebabble/ -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
