I've been developing sites from some time now ( I know i've mentioned this in another post) but what is the true real benefit of using CSS for layout over tables. I mean both can do the same thing and to be quite frank I find it quicker to use tables for layout. You don't have to worry about all the cross browser compatibilities and floats and divs not lining up perfectly ?
I have some old table based sites and am just wondering if it's worth converting them. For new sites I would probably agree that you need to move onto using CSS etc, but what about old sites ?
