You must be really living out in the sticks if you haven't heard by now that using HTML tables for layout is bad. Markup is for content, CSS is for presentation, we learned.
You must be living in the land of magic mushrooms if you haven't realized by now that making CSS do exactly what you want is easier said than done.
See, in the ideal, happy-go-lucky world, everything is just right. The content, custom-tailored by suave professional markup writers, fits perfectly into the widths and proportions of your template. The browsers support standards at exactly the same level and in exactly the same way.
Too bad we don't live in Mayberry. With the loony Czar "The Exasperating" CSS 1.50304 ruling the presentational realm, it is surprisingly hard to build templates that are not brittle. Even The Man himself is battling with the idiosyncrasies of the dominant Web browser. And he's the sole content contributor to the site! What if the entries were written and posted by someone who neither knows nor cares about the quality of markup, which last time I checked, is the absolute majority of your typical content contributors?
