Introduction

Lines is a simple design that would be great for a small personal website or a blog. It is XHTML validated and has CSS level 2 implemented for formatting and layout. The following section go into more depth about this template.

Standards Compliance

Posted by Author @ 1403 EST

Lines is has a DOCTYPE definition of XHTML 1.0 Transitional. It meets the requirements set by the World Wide Web Consortium. This statement has been verifyed using the World Wide Web Consortium Validator.

Because Lines uses CSS extensively the content of a page can be separated from the layout and formatting. To this end you'll find that this page uses two stylesheets to accomplish that goal. First, there is the Global Layout stylesheet which, you guess it, contains all the information used for layouting out this page. Second, there is the Global Formatting stylehseet which does what you would think.

This page also uses the position: fixed element which does not work in internet explorer version 6 and lower. This element does however work in Mozilla/Netscape 7 and causes the left navigation menu to remian in a static position. In Internet explorer it simply remains where it was when the page loaded and does not move as the user moves the page.

No Tables

Posted by Author @ 1402 EST

This page uses absolutely no tables for its layout as this coder believes that tables should only be used to display tabular data. They should not be in anycase used to display and position various elements on the page.

There are many benefits to designing a page that doesn't use tables; some are listed below:

Tables can be avoided by using CSS via the position: absolute element to position elements on a page so that they don't have to use tables and load faster
