:skx: Are frames and tables related? (was Re: [zzdev] Re: (Resendo of Dirt-Simple Interface Specs):

Dominus spake thus:

Well, insofar as they make orthogonal grids
 in a Web page, they are *similar*, as the
 grasshopper is similar to the kangaroo;
 and I think of that as a relationship.
 In biology, to say that the grasshopper
 and kangaroo are "not related" is to deny
 phylogenetic near connection.  But they
 do share strong analogic, structural and strategic
