CSS vs Tables ?
« on: 05-08-2010, 07:42:01 »
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 ?

CSS is much better for layout it's so versitile compared to HTML for organizing pages.  Tables can also appear ugly but if you code them right in HTML they can accomplish about the same thing.

Table's won't make a difference in terms of final results but they're messy. Code is more lightweight with CSS and XHTML, easier to manage and of course makes use of the latest advancements in both XHTML and CSS. Definitely the way forward. Leave table tags for tables :)
