Divitis We Fall

Highlight and Note from Michael Thorne (@mikkelz_za)

“Another classic example of divitis kicks in when a designer catches the ‘tables are bad, CSS is good’ virus and righteously replaces 200 tons of table markup with 200 tons of nested divs.”

Note: Been there. Done that. Never again. #DWWS (via @zeldman)
