Re: tables vs. layers

Layers is the term used in Dreamweaver (even MX 2004). Readers should
understand that, in DW, layers are s with an id of Layer# (where # is
replaced by a number, Layer# is the default format but may easily be changed
to any id name you wish to use) with inline CSS-P style properties. There is
nothing proprietary about DW's implementation of layers but it is
unfortunate that the positional information is stored in the tag becuase it
makes it more difficult, for the novice, to extract the CSS and place it in
an embedded or external stylesheet.

css-p (what you call 'layers'--which is really an outdated term)
