I want to build a table with style sheets, without using the "<table border="000"><tr><td align="left" valign="top" width="000"> content </td></tr></table> commands. In other words, can I build a table with just stylesheet commands and how do I do it. I will give top points if you can REALLY answer this.

This was the suggesstion from dagon in May, but it fails in Netscape. So, this answer is wrong:::::::-->>  
<span style="width: 200px; text-align: right; padding-right: 10px; border: 1px">Text aligned right  in a box that is aligned left.</span>
<span style="width: 200px; text-align: left">Text aligned left in a box that follows the first</span>
<P><!-- new row -->
<span style="width: 200px; text-align: right">left side row 2</span>
<span style="width: 200px; text-align: left">right side row 2</span>

Thank you. I thought that was the case. Thus, if one wants to avoid using tables to do a  layout and use style sheets insted, that person is "SOL" I suppose? That's frustrating because style sheets were supposed to put an end to having to use tables all over the place. As it is, I end up using tables in 90% of my pages, nay, 99%. That's becuase I am used to having Quark/PageMaker style control and the only way to have that type of layout control is with exact tables. I had hoped that style sheets would alleviate that. I will give the 95 points I offered. It's not that you didn't answer the question, just that I'm only willing to give all my points to a solution which uses style sheets. Since there is none, I will keep the points I have left for future questions, otherwise, I'm SOL!!!
