    good idea or bad?!

    Hi all!

    I'm trying to design a site layout, and I'd like to use layers.
    In your opinion are they a good idea?
    Does it hinder the site, the loading time, etc if you use loads of different layers?
    What do you think?

    Thanks

    I used to use layers for my diary, and then received complaints that it looked a mess as the layers did not work on a Mac. So unless there's something you can use for it to work on all browsers I would suggest not to use if possible and stick with tables.
    It will also depend on your intended audience.

    My 2 cents worth.

    Well, thats definately good to know

    Complaints would have been awful after working so hard!

    I wonder if there is a way to make them multi-browser friendly.

    I cant use tables for the life of me!

    Thanks for your info

    I think I'll have to read that quite a few times to understand it !

    Thank you VERY much, I couldn't think of where to get that sort of code

    Thank you!!

    Tables are alot easier than most poeple imagine, and it might save you a little trouble, check out this thread if you want to get the basics.

    AFAIK absolutely postioned divisions load faster than anything else because the browser doesn't have to read the whole page to decide where the div should go. As soon as it reads it, it dumps it in place.

    ...and if you want to shift a block of text in the center of your page, you don't need to worry about how the rest of the table will be affected. Tables might be a bit easier at the outset, but they're a real pain to revise.
