What a beautiful quote:

"In New York, the transit from beauty to desolation always proceeds 
expeditiously, as if the universal principle of maximum efficiency had 
advised suppression of any intermediary states."

Isn't that right? I love Spanish -- where universal principles don't 
dictate, they merely advise. (grin)

Re: [nycphp-talk] And the HTML CSS guru is....

This thread probably belongs on front-end but... no doubt but that tables
are for tabular data. There's a nice SitePoint book about kicking the
table habit:  Forms are the one
thing with which I haven't been able to get clean and sober, because
aligning all the elements with pure CSS -- at least for a non-guru like
myself, judging from the solutions I've seen and tried -- is a PITA.

En Nueva York el tránsito de la belleza a la desolación sucede
siempre expeditivamente, como si el principio universal
de máxima eficiencia hubiera aconsejado la supresión de
gradaciones intermedias.
