CSS is new way and more web site use div with css to layout. However, table is still good choice when you use to layout with columns since not all IE versions display css properly.

I think the only real difference would be the page load time and cleaner code.

CSS is the way to go.

I agree with the previous posters. css for layout and search engine purposes and tables when you need some tabular data presented. No tables are used for actual layout these days, it's a way of the past.

CSS has far more option than TABLE and CSS gives fabulous Look to your website. CSS help webpage to load faster than TABLE.
If you will use a separate style sheet instead of inline CSS it will be very easy to change color and design at later time when you need.

Definitely CSS as it will takes out the junk code from your web page.

I really like how tables hold everything in place across a wide variety of screen widths and computers.
It's frustrating to put up small pictures on the same horizontal line, and have them slide all across the screen and covering the text below when viewing the site in smaller screen resolutions.

This may be fixable by placing them in a list, like a nav bar, now that I think about it...

Having learned how to make things work with tables, and getting results we were happy with, and then having to learn a completely new kind of coding that fails a lot more than it succeeds can be frustrating...

Google is getting better at offering up the information if we can put words to what we're looking for... but, sometimes when we just want results, and we already know how to get what we want, it's often more satisfying to go with what we know.

But... may be the difference between old dogs, and up n comers...

I don't think you can use one without the other. Tables is really necessary to keep a lot of the template together while CSS is great for styling purposes but I rarely use it for positioning.

You are absolutely right W3 !! Anyway, new generations of browsers support all new CSS standards. So, it's wiser and easier to build your site using CSS.

at first I thought that CSS is really hard because I came in to creating a website from tables. right now I'm enjoying on using CSS and makes the site really loads faster than most standard tabled sites.
