In the process of updating this blog, I have been searching for the ultimate WordPress template. This site currently uses a modified version of Blix by Sebastian Schmieg which works pretty well but is limited to two columns. I’ve searched through hundreds of templates but nothing comes close to what I want. So I got out my trusty Dreamweaver MX2004 and decided to build my own WordPress template.
I have used Dreamweaver for years and have built and modified many different sites. But WordPress was different. It is compliant.
Compliant… what is that?
Well in a nutshell, compliant means that you can’t use tables anymore in your HTML.
You now have to design your site using CSS and XHTML.
This little change has made Dreamweaver obsolete.
I need to go back to school and learn about divs and floats and CSS totes.
I need help as I have found that the web police tell me that tables are bad… very bad!
What would happen if I built a WordPress template with tables? Would I be arrested?
Help me… my HTML has fallen and I can’t mark up…
