Our goal for this project is as straightforward as can be: to take an HTML-heavy design and convert it to use CSS-driven layout. In so doing, we'll explore how commonly used HTML structures and tricks can be replaced with vastly simpler markup and CSS, and how doing this makes the document markup a great deal easier to read. When we're done, we'll take some measurements to determine just how much of a savings our effort has yielded.
We'll assess each portion of the document as we reach it, so what approaches we'll take aren't known ahead of time. We can still articulate some general goals:
If we can fulfill all of these goals, we'll have done something fairly remarkable.
