This is a freaking scary to be reading in November 2006:
A professional company that still thinks using tables is good for for presenting information and better than CSS-positioning. Someone over there needs to get with the times. What makes it more embarrassing is that is written by an Australian at NetRegistry.
Come on, Guys, Read your last comment from Steven Hambleton:
For all those who are ‘dabbling‘ in web design then, YES, tables are fine, just leave them out of ‘professional‘ web design.
As professionals we are bound to make sure our sites are cross browser supported and that especially includes accessibility. For bigger sites, the bandwidth costs are nothing to be sneezed at.
Of course CSS can be used with tables but tables are meant for tabular data. Think of an Excel spreadsheet. What kind of data would you put in there? Not a resume, that’s for sure!
Taking the time to learn CSS and non table based layout means you take the web industry seriously as a professional.
