Why my own adapter?First of all I'm obliged to say that I didn't re-invented the wheel as well as I don't write a new adapater method.
This solutions is simply based on the work ASP.Net team did with the version 1.0 of the ASP.NET 2.0 CSS Control Adapters.
The MS control's adapters is a great code, but unfortunately not all the code return a pure CSS rendering, expecially for the GridView control where, they simply replace some tags, but essentially leave the <table> tag inside the code.
As a web designer / developer, it's about 3 years that I don't use anymore the table into my web site and the idea to see just that gridview rendered in an old fashion style let me orrify until I decided to try to improve / extend the Microsoft Control Adapter.
Why use this adpater?Well you aren't obliged to use it; as Scott's said in one of its posts, they are working on a pure-CSS solution, but meanwhile they release it you can work with my code if you like it.
Don't forget that actually the adapter is in a sort of beta stage. I wrote it yesterday afternoon, tested this morning and despite it seems to work quite well, I cannot assure that it will works in every environment (I did tests on Firefox 220.127.116.11 and IE 7).
For the same reason a lot of new things can be added as well as be improved.
Also pay attention that a pure CSS solution also needs a good CSS design and since the tags are nested and the new table could be nested too not all design are immediately reachable.
