Table Layouts

In the past, web developers have used tables to force an underlying structure onto a web page.

We believe this is an innappropriate use of the HTML Table elements and should be avoided. It intermingles the structure of a page with its content and can cause accessibility problems. It also makes the code more difficult to understand and harder to maintain.

The layout of a web page is better controlled by using Cascading Style Sheets(CSS), whilst using Tables to provide the structure for tabular data.
