I have two tables they appear one under the other. The html is like:
<table>
first table
</table>
<table>
second table
</table>

What is the way that I can make them come next to each other so they appear like two frames aligned together. I have tons of code in this file and do not want to spilt in seperate HTML files.

Thanks

The old fashioned way is:

The new fashioned way is:

So the only remaining question is: which century do you live in?!

Since you asked...

It's a physical (and therefore indisputable) reality that everyone reading this is living in the 21st Century.

Having established that, I ask what you meant with the humorous 'century' question?

Does the answer have to do with Cascading Style Sheets? Which version is currently supported now by Mozilla 1.7.2 for example?

I think HTML 3.2 will be supported forever.

Hi Tony,

Sadly I fear you may be right about HTML 3.2. Still, it helped fuel the revolution.

The sentiment that I'm trying to convey is that, wherever practical and possible, we should seek to use the latest [best?] technology for new developments.

I'm aware of the plethora of issues surrounding browser support for CSS, quirks mode, bugs in the implementation, not least with CSS-P and the few shortcomings of standards-compliant HTML. However, (as I expect you'd agree?!) the vast majority of the latest standards-compliant technology can be implemented in the major browsers with only a little difficulty.

Examples of the best practices are out there to be found for those who care to look. Let's embrace the new stuff lest we be stuck with HTML 3.2 and Netscape 4 forever!

Oh, and because it's fun.

Rajesh,
Despite the above, be concious if you make a decision that doesn't allow Netscape 4 users (yes they are still out there) to use your site. Our new development contracts require that we still support Netscape 4.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
