'Nother one in the can

Just got done with another few days in the recording booth at Lynda.com recording Dreamweaver MX 2004 Databases with ASP (talk about a long title). Hopefully it should be hitting the online movie library in a few weeks :) (make me look good now editors...)

Congrats, Dan. You're cranking these out faster than I can watch 'em! :) Not to sound shamless here, but your first video was outstanding. And, out of all the online learning websites out there (I subscribe to them all), Lynda.com has the best streaming videal quality, bar none. Even Photoshop videos are not demoted in quality. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to it and keep up the great work!

I am a big fan of any training title on Lynda.com and Kudos on your latest tutorial. I just have one question... "Why" Just when tables no longer give me headaches you introduce the div tag. Then you take the "div tag" to a whole new plateau. I have heard developers complain about complicated table layouts and it being diffucult to update update dynamic content. Does creating a site with a div method make it easier to update dynamic content? How about the ASP functionality. Does your this section of the tutorial of the tutorial utilize the table method or the "div method" Thanks for providing another concept for developing sites!

Hi Evan, The reasoning behind div vs. table layouts for me is about simplification. I can usually take a table based layout and converted to a div based layout and shave 25-50% of the actual markup code out of the page. Tables, and their requisite markeup, can get huge and convoluted quickly. Now granted, div/CSS-P based markups can get just as huge and convoluted, but generally speaking the code will be smaller, and the page will render faster in more browsing devices than a similar table based layout. Hope that helps :), Dan
