Home Forums Other What are some "CSS Myths"? Re: What are some “CSS Myths”?

What kept me from throwing away the whole "table-based" website design and adopting the CSS model was the numerous comments I read on the internet about how the most used browser (IE6 at the time) was just so bad at handling CSS that people shouldn’t bother learning CSS at all! I read that you’ll need to use "hacks" and other tricks just to get your CSS designs to appear somewhat normal.

After getting my hands dirty with CSS, I’ve learned that there really aren’t that many bug fixes one needs to get a good looking CSS design in IE6. Sure, you may not be able to do everything that you want, but the amount of bug fixing that one needs to do really isn’t that much. It’s just a little bit of a learning curve.

But as comedian Dennis Miller once said:
"But that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong."
