View Full Version : Nested Tables VS... ?

06 Mar 2006, 06:25 PM
I'm probably not looking hard enough, but I'm just so tired of pouring through technical books that I just need help.

I want to have a shared border for every page in my site. I'm thinking something basic like a "top" border and a "left" border that you see often in web sites, with the banner at the top, content links to the left and the actual content of the page to the right.

I'm getting sick of the quirky behavior of the Frontpage and wanted to use Notepad (actually, Notepad++, but very small differences between the two) to program my site, but so far, I can't seem to understand how to do all that I need to do.

THe only way I've known is to use nested tables, but I really don't want to cut and paste for every freakin' page, which is what I knew/thought CSS was for.

Any one know any sites that have better tutorials for programming borders?

I'd just do it with <?php include ?> and CSS, personally.
