Other versions used absolute positioned images or
divs to make up the blocks.
<table> with CSS-styled cell borders as a grid seemed logical.
I experimented with different methods of accessing the table. I experimented with:
We're talking 30-40 milliseconds here BTW, not microseconds (remember, 2004) to iterate
through the cells. Accessing it by
was almost as fast as
nextSibling but more convenient in terms of code-size and readability :-)
The same is true for using table methods
deleteRow. Less code and more speed then moving the cells individually.
Nowadays you can bring it down to 1 KB or even 512 bytes, but I did not want to give up on the scoring system, preview and VIM-bindings :-) Another time maybe!
