I try not to,but sometimes I do for making a simple login area or affiliates area.
I never use tables other than for tabular data.
That is great,atleast you know what to use them for .
I donâ€™t use tableâ€™s much. I would prefer using Div tags. They are more flexible.
I used them for my forum.
only time I used tables with HTML was back when I was learning it in school and I didn't care to use them.
I try not to use tables.
I have many thoughts on it. Expressing them right here and now might spark a debate and I have not had time to weight up the precise usefulness of the, with regards to your present dilemma.
Using tables for structural design has several disadvantages. When you use Photoshop to create the design using the slice tool, many cells require a spacer image. Sure you can delete them and the use the height and width properties in the table; however, this seems a bit cumbersome.
Tables are good on a few situations but from SEO point of view are to be avoided. I don't use tables for a few years already.
Say no to tables and don't even consider iframes!
Nah, tables are "so last year".
Its divs all the way now. I think the only time I ever use a table is when I want to publicly display a table for data etc. Or in forums where its practically unavoidable.
That, divs are so much faster.
CSS layouting is far more powerful ... you can even use 3D coordinates (z-index!) to place elements, which makes a lot of stuff a lot easier!
CSS is definitely more powerful indeed and is more preferable to tables. I also avoid using table at all costs because CSS is even more easier to manage. I did use them a lot before I got better with CSS as I felt it was more easier for lack of enough knowledge on CSS.
100% agree, Its the best method to follow to code designs today.
Only when I need to display an actual table. I prefer using CSS and proper semantic markup for actual layouts.
I used to loved tables about 10 years ago but now I love DIV tags. While tables are great for designing, they do involve a lot of coding and one little mistake can ruin your entire layout. DIVs do allow you to centralize everything and it is easy to code and debug with DIV tags.
It depends. On many purchased or downloaded applications, they may have tables. And redoing the same thing without the use of Tables is quite unnecessary because of costs and overheads. So for these, I have to let them be in use. As for all other codes where I am the coder or the team lead, I ensure that we dont use tables except for displaying data - which goes best with tables.
That depends on what I'm coding/designing, but usually not.
