CSS forms can work!
I’ve been getting questions on how to create a <form> in HTML without tables. Eric Meyer has addressed this some time ago. And his solutions does seem to work well across browsers. One comment I’ve been getting is that it doesn’t scale very well with font and window sizes. <Table>‘s still seem to be the best way to layout a <form>. To be really honest I’m not entirely convinced that one shouldn’t use <tables>. Some argue that a questionnaire is in of itself a tabbed layout and that a <table> would be permissible. Sounds tempting to me.
But that argument withstanding I decided to go ahead and make a <form> without a <table> more resistant to the whims of the user by allowing for font and window sizing. So I unpacked my ‘ems’ and ‘percentages’ and came up with a solution.
