Hi Everyone,

Would it be better to make website table less? Has anyone ever developed website completely table less?

And, what's the purpose of making a site table less?

Hope, I will have some good inputs from you guys. Thanks...

It is quite easy to make tableless sites. I suggest you have a look at the Wikipedia entry for it. At the bottom of that page you will find a few links that are useful if you want to use the technique.

In general, tables are misused, in web design, often by html generators and by people that don't know any better. Tables, however, do have aplace in web design, simply not as often as they are used. The article above gives good arguments for, agains and when to use tables.

Hope this helps.

I used to be a master at designing tabled websites, and took awhile to actually embrace tableless design. It takes a bit of learning, but once you learn to be table-less ninja, you can design sites quickly without tables. Its still ok to use tables for tubular data, but for the layout of the template, go tableless.

In order to design tableless sites, you must become good as advance css techniques as well.

Good luck, and have fun.

It's more semantic to develop websites without using tables, but it can also be a lot more difficult. If you don't know how to do it one way or another, I recommend learning how to do it tableless, though.

Nope, you can also make tableless websites without Flash. By using (X)html and CSS.

:| Of course it is, why would it not be? Take a look at the links Creadion gave, and take a look at the source of many websites such as Ozzu ... very little use of tables.

i think tableless webpage in way is synonym for webpages using css. for me using table made it so easy. i do any type of alignment, presentation with it. but now this tableless concept is a bt difficult for me using div and all. also one of my clients told me that tableless webpages are good for SEO and that is why it is in demand? is that true?

Tableless or tablefull doesn't have much effect on SEO, really ... but what does is the content.

Tableless layout a site in XHTML and CSS is the best option, for its easy maintenance, so you can validate in the W3C, and is more readable by search engines.
