    practicing what they preach tables and layout

    just a thought. every 'expert' css site you go to has the following obligatory note 'tables are for displaying tabular data not for lay out' then when you view source on their page what have they done?
    used tables for layout of course. i mean if the css 'experts' actually practiced what they preached the css tutorial sites would be much better.

    I see nothing wrong with using tables for layout. Thank goodness I have not seen such articles.

    You could use divs instead, but I don't see what's wrong with tables.

    Yeah, I don't see what's wrong with tables either.

    I'm sure that if I learned how to use CSS for layout, which I plan to do very soon, I would say that tables weren't all that great.

    I think that once you learn CSS for layout, tables seem to complicated to code together.
