OOP and tables

I’m still struggling to understand the concept of classes and object-oriented programming in PHP. This is tough stuff. I’m also coming to terms with the fact that, for certain design objectives — non-graphic tabbed menus among them — HTML table hacks, in tandem with CSS box properties, retain certain advantages over pure CSS-based design, for fast and convenient markup, as well as for cross-browser compatibility.

    Good luck. :) Object-oriented programming can give one headaches sometimes.

    I know a bit about OO programming and Classes (all from that “Learn Java in 20 Days” book, which hasn’t worked much), and the gist of it is (at least from a layman’s POV) is they’re all for organization and ease-of-REuse later on.

    At least you’re on the right mode of learning. After you master the basics switching over to other languages won’t be as difficult since they all more or less run on the same premise.

    Once it “clicks” you might never go back to non-object programming.
