Tables or CSS for webpage layout - 2
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
Our earlier post on this subject was dictated by some of the practicalities that relate to small business websites in the UK. Since that post, we have increased our use of CSS-based non-table website layouts.
Here’s a nice link that explains why tables for website layout purposes are not so great. The link may be two years old, but it’s one of the few occasions where we have seen the reasoning explained clearly and effectively.
However, we still believe that some website layouts can be achieved more effectively and quickly with a simple “tables-lite” layout. This particularly applies to websites on a budget where there is no room for any solving of CSS “problems”.
