CSS v tables
Tables are a thing of the past. Today's designers have left behind the old-style sites full of clunky code and nested tables. Sites using tables for design, instead of a table's proper use - tabular data - can choke browsers and be rendered useless for visitors using screen readers or a handheld device. Using CSS to separate content from presentation means that only one file needs to be downloaded from the server instead of huge amounts of code embedded into each page, meaning that your website will be faster to download, take up less space on the server, use less bandwidth and be more search engine friendly.
