I just spent the last few hours learning CSS so that I could implement niko's style in a BML template... the sticky part was that brad wanted to use the strict html DTD... which meant that the browsers ignored HEIGHT="100%" on tables, although mozilla and IE both supported it with no DTD specified. Solution: learn CSS, implement the whole thing using nothing but divs. Heh.
I'm not sure if CSS is really okay for this though. I mainly just had fun learning/trying it out. Looks fine for me in Mozilla and IE, but maybe there are other objections. ?
