Sometimes you will want to present non tabular information in a table format because you like the look of uniformity. The way to do this is to use divs in almost the same way you would do so for a table. The great thing about using a DIV/CSS table over a regular table is you have much more flexibility in manipulating the layout. For instance you might want every second row to have 3 columns of equal width compared to every other which 4 columns of equal width.
The code in this post will let you build the table pictured below. Taking this the next level will allow you to create the complex CSS tables used in loan results of the MortgageCorp Mortgage Calculator pictured left. I would recommend the CSS table over a regular table unless tabular data is being presented.

Below is a list of some of the challenges faced in creating an ecommerce solution and some basic questions that should be asked to minimise the challenges.
Ecommerce is focused on workflow compared to website design which is focused on content and layout. When designing an ecommerce solution the most important part is to understand the workflow. This involves working through each of the stages of the process the solution is meant to solve. While there may be existing processes, the online tool should be about refining those processes instead of just creating an online version of the offline solution. The first questions that should be asked are:

It is no secret that I am a Mac Fan, and a limitation with Macs is the fact that some software and file formats are only for Windows. DAA is no exception. So when I was sent a video file in DAA format I was a little upset till I found a DAA Converter for Mac OS X.
DAA Converter is a free utility for converting DAA-format disk images to ISO format so they can be accessed on your Mac.
It runs on Mac OS X 10.3 Panther or later (I tested it on Snow Leopard).
DAA Converter is free software, distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

You built a great website layout which is 960px wide, and you want to centre (center for EN-US) the website using CSS instead of the dreaded <center> tag. CSS makes this really simple.
Having a website enables you to reach an ever expanding local, national and potential global audience. More and more people are turning to the Web to find out information, to help inform decisions and to buy products and services.

Effective websites lead to increased sales, enhanced communications, and opportunities for new business relations.

I must say my favourite tool I ever built is Toolnames.com – Domain Name Generator and Toolnames.com.au – Domain Name Generator. It is simply the best at finding unique and awesome domains.
Today I found CashInHand.com.au and the other day crappy.com.au. The tool is super easy to use and logical. All of the results are in a single window.
After using this domain generator you will never use another one again.
Create My has a new look and feel to replace the old look. Going off the fact you are already at the site you probably are already aware of the big change in the look. The changes reflected the need to look fresh. The new setup is more flexible any will allow longer term small changes to be made.
The new look sports some great technology inclusions and more are in the works.
Mortgage brokers have for years used the web as a source of leads to get into the house of buyers. Mortgage Corp want to defy this process and provide customers with control, flexibility and real-time results of the loans which best suit the customer, not necessarily which earn the greatest commission. Create My help Mortgage Corp achieve this with the Mortgage Home Loan Calculator.
