Welcome to the SilkLink discussion pages. We will be posting many articles here and hope to cover a wide range of topics. In general we will be discussing web design / development and business related issues.
Look at web developer discussion forums or blogs and you might think that tables are about to be prohibited from the internet. There are such strong arguments against their use. Yet, is use of the newish and trendy CSS coding as an alternative to tables all that it is cracked up to be? Or, has it simply gone too far without considering the benefits along the way?
Warning: this topic is for nurds or people who can easily get anal over website mark-up!
Open Source software solutions are over-looked by many people when considering software for their needs. There is a tendency to stick with well-known names or labels. However, scratch the surface of Open Source alternatives and you will find that there is little difference in looks, functionality, feel, quality and robustness when compared against market leaders.
If Open Source solutions are duly considered in equal proportion to the market leaders, not only will you make a more informed decision, you might boost your profits.
