    I have read a book advocating how great designing web pages in CSS
    rather than tables is so great and I must admit I was rather
    impressed.
    HOWEVER the vast majority of websites I look at these days that are
    done in CSS look to be honest CRAP!
    I know its a new idea and will take time to get going and there are
    some exceptions to the rule http://www.espn.com is a quality site done
    in CSS, but there seems to be an awful lot of complex javascript there
    as well!

    The advantages to CSS are clear and the fact that Tables were never
    intended to be used for design is clear. But basically I am just
    intersted as the what the general feeling of the group is on this
    subject.

    A better place would be comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets.
    However, take a look at e.g. http://www.csszengarden.com/
