I'm not an HTML expert by any means, but I know the basics. However, I can't figure out for the life of me how to put text in columns on a page using HTML. I've done it in tables to a degree, but I'm pretty sure there is another way. If someone could assist me I'd appreciate it!

You could use CSS along with the DIV tags but those are a pain in the butt, best bet is to use tables.

Alright, thanks for the reply. I guess I'll stick to tables then.:(

Is there a reason you don't like tables?

It just doesn't look as good in my opinion.

If you said more precisely what you meant by columns, I could probably point you in the right direction. And tables are as customizable as any other tag in HTML; they can be made to look how you want them to.

Yes they are.

But I think he means the way things happen in MS word.
Its easier to use columns of that type. Using tables is not that hard either. All you have to do is arrange your content the way you want.

You can use a CMS perhaps.

CSS and div tags are easier though..

That way if you ever want to change the layout of a site you only have to change your .css file.

Plus it keeps the content and the design separate.
