    Please, before another 8 years go by, put the stories just after the title. This makes it much less aggravating for cell phone and PDA browsers. Not to mention text browsers like 'links' which is my second favorite /. browser out there.

    You can still position everything just fine with CSS for graphical browsers, they won't see a difference. But for text browsers, users won't have to hit Page Down forty times before getting to the first story.

    • You mean they should put the "Posted by" information at the end of the article?
      Do you Nullset?

        No, he means that all the side bars are coded first at the top of the document, and as list items. If you view the page without CSS or disable CSS, or use custom CSS, all the side bars turn into fifty feet of List Items that you have to navigate down to get to the content. With CSS you can code them at the bottom of the document and position them where ever you want in the CSS.

        As for the "Posted by" section, and I know that fanatics will disagree with me, I think that it should be placed in an Address tag because my user CSS is simply displaying them as a DIV with no margin so it's flush against the first paragraph of the post.

        Also not happy where Score is. Maybe it should be inside the heading tags. I love CSS but I hate when people use DIV as a table layout because my user stylesheet doesn't know what to do with DIV if it's used for every thing on the page. I propose giving table layouts a class=LAYOUT.
