The traditional way of rendering horizontal menus and grids in Web pages is with HTML tables or by styling block level elements like dl, ol, or ul with Cascading Style Sheets( CSS). This often involves CSS workarounds for handling positioning issues.
Since the only block level elements used are divisions, positioning issues and CSS workarounds associated with the use of list elements (ol, ul, li, and dl) are avoided altogether.
BTW. This month issue of the IRW Newsletter is dedicated to Fractals in IR and Web Design. It should reach subscribers’ inboxes next week.
