Redoing this page

Hello,

I've got a page here: http://66.23.198.2/port.html
That I'm trying to redo. I know it is bad to use <form>
tagas in tables for the whole table but I use the table
to make it look good and arrange all the objects well.
Can someone tell me how to eliminate the use of the table
for each form and have a page that looks exactly like it
would with the table? I'm trying to go to 4.01 Strict.

Most of the data in the form as settings, are dynamically
generated when the page is created. The page in the link
above is the static page from my CGI program's output.

Thanks,
Chris

Use tables for tabular data.

Don't use tables for layout.

Look at pages that do what you are looking for. See how they did it,
and copy. For starters, see

<URL: http://www.julietremblay.com/site/contact.html >

which I did. Ask if you have questions.
and have a page that looks exactly like it
would with the table?
If you insist on pixel perfect perfection, you're in for a lot of
disappointment. Let go a little. HTML documents are *supposed* to
look different in different browsers. HTML documents are, in fact,
meant to be presented on more than just graphical browsers.
I'm trying to go to 4.01 Strict.


That's the right choice. And use css to suggest a presentation, as I
have done in the document linked above. Good luck.

Here's a start:

You need to use http://validator.w3.org/ to check your html.

If you want to get rid of tables altogether, use a <label> for the label
text (see
http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#h-17.9 ) and give it a
width in your css (and also for the input elements).
