    put image slices in HTML or CSS??

    I have created a site and sliced it in fireworks, and exported it and I am now piecing it together using dreamweaver. I am using CSS to position the slices. Is there a better way to do what I'm doing. The way I am doing it seems rather tedious. I have attached screenshots of my HTML and CSS.

    Thanks,
    Kris.

    Is this the best way to position slices?

    I have created a site and sliced it in fireworks, and exported it and I am now piecing it together using dreamweaver. I am using CSS to position the slices. Is there a better way to do what I'm doing. The way I am doing it seems rather tedious. I have attached screenshots of my HTML and CSS. Are screenshots Untitled-1 and 2 correct, or screenshots Untitled-3 and 4?

    Thanks,
    Kris.

    CSS:
    HTML Code:
    <style>
    .images {clear:left; float:left;.... }
    ...(etc)
    </style>

    HTML Code:
    <div>
      <img src="#" class="images" />
      <img src="#" class="images" />
      <img src="#" class="images" />
      <img src="#" class="images" />
      <img src="#" class="images" />
      (etc.)
      ....
      <img src="#" class="images" />
    </div>
    but would need to see you actual code to know if this is closer to what you are trying to do...
    You do no need to 'DIV-itis' this... no need to wrap every image in a "DIV" and no need to bloat your CSS with a CLASS or ID for every DIV thereof... let the CSS 'cascade' through your HTML... state it once and let it be re-used.. Smaller code is faster-loading, less bandwidth, easier to maintain, etc.

    Or, smaller still:

    CSS:
    HTML Code:
    <style>
    #images img {clear:left; float:left;.... }
    ...(etc)
    </style>
    HTML Code:
    <div id="images">
      <img src="#" />
      <img src="#" />
      <img src="#" />
      <img src="#" />
      <img src="#" />
      (etc.)
      ....
      <img src="#" />
    </div>
    and says exactly the same thing.

    Very good point Joel. That makes a lot more sense. I have heard some people say that it's better to put the image URL in the css code rather than the HTML code. Does it really matter?

    Images that are decorative place as background in css.
    Images that add to the 'content' place in the html.
