Common Errors in Hybrid Markup

Consider a typical, table-based site design [7.2], complete with a menu bar [7.3] that changes state [7.4] to indicate the visitor's location as she moves from page to page. The site's logo will obviously be a graphic element, most likely a GIF image. The menu labels (EVENTS, ABOUT, CONTACT, and so on) can also be images, or they can be simple hypertext links. If hypertext is chosen, old-school web designers might litter their markup with font tags to control textual appearance (size, face, color) and outdated attributes to control the alignment, border properties, and background color of the table cells containing these menu labels. Modern designers would use CSS instead, but the results might be no better if approached the wrong way.
