Governments are expendable / ··cultures are irreplaceable.
All attempts at building an efficient website. A Journey through time & Trial.
It's quite impressive to feature any level of graphics; such as Icons. It would be preferable, however, if VECTOR IMAGES were used. This would enable thumbnail sized logos. I've found Icons to be the best method for quick referencing.
But, there are too many major drawbacks. It uses too much HTML. This is why I was only able to fit 15 or 20 website-icons on Voy's Page.
Worst of all, Icons depend upon a network host. Therefore, images are not-transferrable. SO, when your website or blog expires; the images disappear with it. This is the primary reason why I eventually abandoned Graphics Icons.
It's better to depend upon straightforward HTML, just in case you change network hosts.
Using Tables will create a professional appearance to your blog. There's one primary advantage: The HTML code is very stable. Everything is automatically spaced perfectly. So, you won't run into any of the problems often found when using Advanced Lists.
Tables are also quite versitile. A few examples aside are prepared to the extent where they wouldn't be identified as mere tables. (but they are). One goood example is EuroIQ. (believe it or not, this is an advanced table).
Two surprising advantages using tables are 1) they don't require a great deal of HTML, and 2) their capability of producing graphic colors. [regarding Piont #1] If you visit a few voy forums, it's amazing that I was able to fit 100 links. [Regarding point #2], each Table Row can produce it's own unique color. This can make anything identifiable.
Here's the main drawbacks: It's very difficult to add websites later on. So, unless you're willing to skip any alphabetical sequence; you're stuck with the original outline. It's also easy to lose your place when creating complete tables. So, when checking your work; you might notice that an extra unwanted row might have been mistakenly added. This can be frustrating, at times.
