Flexi CSS Layouts reviewed on 10Steps.SG

Not only that we got nice reviews on the Adobe exchange from our customers but Flexi CSS Layouts created quite a buzz amongst bloggers too. Johnson Koh from 10Steps.SG calls Flexi CSS Layouts as a “Brilliant invention” and says:

“Some designers have difficulties in using CSS to form up their web pages so they prefer using tables, which is much easier to visualize the final output. I am happy to get a chance to try out the Flexi CSS Layouts from ExtendStudio.  In short, Flexi CSS Layouts is a Dreamweaver plugin that allows you to create CSS layouts without writing a single code from yourself. ”

So, does it make sense to learn CSS if you only do small websites?

Is CSS a viable option for a web designer that only does small sites, or using tables just fits the bill? I remember back in circa 2003 I’ve did my first site using Dreamweaver. Being a marketing guy I was perfectly happy with learning how to do tables. Doing even a 3 columns CSS site looked gibberish to me. Sounds familiar?

But why it seems to be complicated to do table-less designs?

  • Tables always work. There is less code to learn, so chances you do it wrong are less.
  • Table code is easier to understand. Doing HTML tables is quite straightforward, you have the <Table>, <tr>, <td> tags that make things easier to follow. DIVs look the same!
  • Tables designs look the same in most browsers. Being a very basic code even IE6 does a decent job in displaying the content
  • Table designs make no difference for the customers. Most people don’t know how the code behind a site was made.

So, does it make sense to learn CSS if you only do small websites? There are several good reasons why you should switch from a table design to a CSS design, even for a ten pages site. And yes, if you use Dreamweaver there is a very easy way to build CSS sites, even if you don’t know how to code. (more…)
