June 16 Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop will be next Saturday, June 16, at the usual 9-10 am time slot.

Last month, we finished talking about background images just as the clock struck 10. With this month's meeting being the last until September, I picked a topic that I think we can cover at one session--styling tables.

You heard right. We have been dissing tables as a means to lay out a webpage. But tables are not gone. They have a purpose, and CSS gives us a great tools for making tables do what they are supposed to do--convey information. Along the way, we will attack the concept of "div-itis", or more generally, the over-use of CSS and the corresponding non-use of HTML tags in designing pages.

There is no cafeteria service this month, so pack a lunch, and we'll see you Saturday.
