Chapter 2. Mastering CSS > The Myths of CSS

The Myths of CSS

Even if you use CSS regularly, even if you’re a great fan of how it simplifies Web site creation, even if you wouldn’t think of designing a Web site without it, you probably encounter other designers, programmers, and managers who argue that using CSS is a bad idea. If you’re one of those people who argue—then shame on you.

To a certain extent, I don’t really blame the detractors. Although CSS has been around for years, browsers adapted the standard unevenly, and there have even been changes and additions to the standard. With styles in HTML, on the other hand, designers have a certain confidence that even if their designs aren’t identical in all browsers, at least the basics will show through. However, the days of unreliable CSS are gone, and unless you’re designing strictly for a legacy browser (such as Netscape 3) most of the arguments against CSS amount to a few myths that some still cling to.
