3-Column layouts don't always have to be table based. I had a client who purchased one of the older Project Seven Design Packs, and wanted to update it to load a little quicker and be more standards based.
Take a gander at this Project Seven mod (not sure they're selling this particular DP anymore) I did for RobinChang.com. All of the tables were stripped out and redone with a clean, full <div> layout. I was able to keep the PVII effects intact and it's nearly impossible to tell the difference between this and their original tabular form. And, it validates as XHTML 1.0 Transitional of course.
Macromedia is getting better about releasing updates for their current products (thank goodness) and have just released an update for users who have installed the ASP.NET 1.1 Framework. You can find the update in their support section of Macromedia.com.
I got a new CD from my dad yesterday, which he said he and mom are listening to a lot, and it's pretty good stuff. Bob Shneider's Lonelyland from Austin Texas. This is totally not what I expected from my dad... he must be getting hipper in his old age ;)
