Re: Interesting that the communty here seems almost unified for once
Hmm. Have you ever tried to get CSS to put some arbitrary Thing in some arbitrary position relative to another Thing?
Come back and say that again when you can do that in less than a couple hundred lines of thoroughly twisty CSS.... Or more likely a couple of tens of kilobytes.
(Not a webdev, but I sometimes have to put one hand over my eyes and use the other to poke at it with the 11-foot-pole-for-poking-things-you-wouldn't-touch-with-a-10-foot-pole.)
