i'm sorry but liquid designs is sort of "ehhh...." in my opinion.

It's a nice concept, and I guess I'm being overly critical... but I can't really accept liquid designs that work fine at 1600 x 1200 but break at less than 550 width.

Some of the showcase sites like http://www.mindtheshark.com/ and even www.cssliquid.com itself breaks at smaller window widths.

That's why you can set min width to 640px (or equivalent) and max width to 1200px (or equivalent) to keep the site readable in all resolutions.

To answer the question in the title: CSS (unless you have some data best organized in a table).

You know finally I am a convert to css and working towards tableless design. Finally. It's hard to make the change when you're busy and don't really *need* to I know but I was pushed and I took the plunge. I found once I'd wrapped my head around the theory it all fell into place. Sure sometimes I'm doing things and am not 100% sure why, but hey I felt that way with HTML in 1994.

I have to say I *love* css now I really do.

I got the book, "The CSS Anthology - 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks" by Rachel Andrew, which I haven't cracked open yet. Maybe I'll take a look this weekend, since it seems that tables are so obsolete.

Risa I have this book and it's brilliant. Even just dipping into it to try things is a great way to start.
