    Cells for a blog

    I'm going about making a blog... but i HATE HTML with a passion, im a flash guy. The only reason i use HTML is to get people to see my flash stuff, and for this blog. Anyways i want to make a cool cell type thing like Lostinbeta has in his blog (Here) but i have no idea how to do this. (I did search but didnt find anything st00pid enough for my low-level HTML skill )

    He's using CSS enhanced tables.

    'Tis correct, I am using just regular tables and just adjusting their colors via CSS.

    Although I should be using CSS enhanced div tags and make this XHTML compliant, but I am just too lazy

    Ok I found it...
    If you are working with Dreamweaver I can help you a little bit. Read the program's help program about what CSS really is. As far as I have bothered to find out it is a way to preformat your different tags and some other layout options. You can either save them as part of the html-file or as an external file. In DW (I don't know about others) you can do all of this is within the program. You can automate things like your links so that you don't have to reformat everyone every time.
    In DW you open the CSS styles panel if it isn't already open. Choose the radio button "edit styles" then add a style by clicking on the doc with a + on it in the lower right corner of the panel. To get the hairline line, either choose redefine html-tag or make custom class. Decide whether you want it to be part of the document or an external sheet. click OK. in the box coming up click borders in the left box, set the style to solid, the width to value 1 and points!!!! in the dropdown menu beside. basically I gues you could define it in the code as 1pt instead of 1px. Try if you don't want to bother with the CSS. It is handy though for repeating processes and of course you can make your external sheet and apply it to all the files where you want to have a certain layout.
    Hope this helps!
    and thanks you pro's out there who don't necessarily answer too easy questions. It makes the rest of us think (and have to do something) which usually is a good thing.
