Layout Properties

  • Jeremy Foster


The web stack’s long history of somewhat less than stellar layout support is caused by a few things, in my opinion. First, we had tables, and tables sufficed to some degree. Sure, they were never the right place to define your layout, but were sufficient. Second, web development targets many browsers on a variety of devices, and attempts to define a document that adapts to its display. Contrast this to the print world where a standard sheet of paper never changes size and visual artifacts can be positioned anywhere.
