Web Page Design
Common design for a web page:
Page design can be achieved by a table (high level, easily changed)
Table formatter can layout table to suit resolution of display.
Style directives can constrain width and height of cells.
Page design can also be achieved by divs (lower level, faster)
However, changes require coordinates & pixel lengths be recomputed.
Page design can also be achieved by frames (less desirable)
Frames create navigation problems and conflate structure with layout.
