Default Nav Bar Styling

Rich: This is probably my last post in this forum because I have finished your Beginning CSS book. It's a great book -- all marked up with my comments for future reference. Thanks for all the help too.

I'm creating a site using Visual Web Designer, using partial classes, master pages, etc. and styling many pages with their own css. I am having a problem creating a navigation bar on a master page, which gets copied to every application page. I am trying to avoid using tables-row-td for the nav bar placement. I have been spectacularly unsuccessful at trying to place the nav bar and the content place holder on child pages exactly where I want them.

What I am asking you, is if you can suggest a way or approach to avoiding the use of tables altogether for the placement of text, controls, images, links.

Of course, tabular data from a database that naturally belongs together is a candidate for inclusion in a table or a table-like contol, such as a Visual Basic GridView.

Excluding that, there should be a way to place everything else on a page without resorting to tables -- right?

I'd have to see your web page in order to help you design it without tables.

Have you got a link?

Rich
