Project 1. Converting an Existing Page > Assessing the Benefits

Assessing the Benefits

In describing a conversion process like the one we've undertaken in this project, you might meet with some bewilderment. “Why bother, when tables already work?” is the usual question. There are two good reasons.

First, the document structure is a lot cleaner and thus a lot easier to edit and generally maintain. Let's say you had an unclosed element somewhere in your markup, and it was completely messing up the layout. Would you rather sift through the HTML design, choked as it is with font tags and tables nested inside tables, or the relatively clean structure we had at the end of the conversion process? Probably the latter.
