    I need advise on the use of DIVs VS Tables & Fixed DIVs VS non-Fixed DIVs

    I need advise on the use of DIVs VS Tables & Fixed DIVs VS non-Fixed DIVs


    I presently have a simple work portal page that's all made with Tables. But I would like now to make a more contemporary type of page, although we're limited in our work environment to use IE6

    Fortunately I've been able to implement most CSS features (some CSS3).*

    So far I've thought of keeping those tables containing at least 9 elements/items, and put them in a div container.
    I like the precision that Fixed DIVs afford me when positioning them. But it seems to me I'd end up with a website all left aligned. Which it's pretty bad, especially if it's been seeing in a large widescreen monitor. This makes me wonder about using one of the other alternatives for positioning.

    I hope this was clear enough. I could really use your advise guys.

    Hi, I do not have much experience with tables but am confident that I could create the same results using nested divisions, and placing tables within a containing division does not give any alignment constrictions. Could not say anything concrete without seeing what you have already but would be very suprised if it could not be successfully converted. Jim

    What jamaks said, plus: You have to apply a left and right margin of “auto” to center a block-level element.
