What did your customer ask you for? That's all you know on earth and all you need to know.

If your customer wants table hell, then that is what you give him. Of course, you do everything in your power to make it so that someone else gets to worry about laying out the table hell (template toolkit is your friend here...), and if you're that way inclined you try and convince him that he's making a mistake. But if you don't deliver what you are asked for then you are falling down on the job big time.

If you are the customer then do what you think is right. But if you don't look at what you're users are doing be prepared for pissed off users.

Oh yes, I voted your node down I'm afraid. The Web is not The Internet. The Internet is not The Web.
