CSS Layouts: The Fixed. The Fluid. The Elastic.



Which Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) layout is best? All have their quirks
and their unique pros and cons. Is one more accessible than the other?
More usable? What are the drawbacks and how are they dealt with? Is one
easier to create than the other? Is there an evil,
inaccessible layout? I suspect some will say yes to this, but I’m not
going to. I like them all and feel all are suitable if steps are taken
to ensure easy usability and equal accessibility. All are part of a web
site’s presentational layer, so most of the accessibility
relies on the extractable semantics and proper usage of the underlying
mark-up. What follows is my take on the rigid fixed, the adaptable fluid, and the expandable elastic layouts.
