PHP & TBL

I want to be able to split the appearance and the content in a web site.

I know that php offers a way to do this. For example the phpbb.com does this with tables (.tbl files). Does anyone know how this is done and/or have sample code?

I think this is the best way to handle the different language displays. In other words, when a different language is to be displayed, the entire web content will not have to change, only the text.

You have posted in the codes and project section of the site and I have moved it to the Queries and Expert comment section.

You can do that with tables and also you can use the CSS to achieve the same.

Hi,
First of all phpbb doesn't use tbl files, it uses tpl files, which are template files.
Templates separte presentation & business logic, so that modifying one doesn't affect the other.
You can achive the likes of phpbb by using a template engine, one of the popular template engine is Smarty http://smarty.php.net
Hope this helps you.
