    I use CSS mainly for font and form formatting.
    I prefer specifing positioning as attritubutes to whatever tag that it affects, beit tables or whatever...

    I like CSS for positioning, but sometimes if you're going to use a single table layout over and over (like each post on a forum) I wonder if a PHP class would work better. Each post being an object. Any thoughts?

    Question Dunno

    I've never used PHP, but can't you use ServerSideIncludes as a template?

    In perl forums there's post templates anyway, and they're still given CSS classes to allow easy customising. In PHP forums you could use an object to do the same thing I guess

    I've written a few forum-esque PHP applications and I usually just write one PHP script to add certain table tags to a page and then add the information in it, so, of course, the same exact tags are written over and over again.

    I like the CSS layouts, personally, there's a lot of cool stuff that you can do with them, and I prefer them over the table layouts I've created in the past. I think it also gives the page more of a professionally designed look, much neater...and it's fairly easy.
