W3C switched today its home page to a full CSS layout instead of the
previous table-based one. See:
The techniques used in this layout has been documented at:
It is basically realized through the float property.
As you may know, using CSS for horizontal layout has some important
– respect of the HTML semantics (tables are really for tabular data)
– better accessibility
– better device scalability
The downside is that some non-CSS2 aware browsers do not render it as
intended; the page keeps completely readable though.
The W3C Communication Team is interested in hearing comments on this
change on the publicly archived mailing-list firstname.lastname@example.org
