Chapter 21. Making Your Pages and Webs M... > Using DHTML Layout and Positioning

Using DHTML Layout and Positioning

Until a couple of years ago, web authors had to rely on some rather crude layout tools: floating alignments, paragraph alignment, and tables. These are not precise enough to satisfy graphics professionals, and it was only a matter of time until something better was introduced.

The "something better" is Cascading Style Sheets layout and positioning. These tools are actually part of the CSS specification, but they are considered part of the DHTML toolkit so often that they're examined in this chapter. This is suitable because the layout and positioning tools lend themselves to creating dynamic effects through scripting.
