Tables are not for layout Posted on April 17, 2008 by Shaun Kester HTML Tables are not for layout. Period. Why do designers/developers still do it? Dreamweaver makes it too easy.
Because in school they still teach it. I found out when I was helping my friend do a web page in BTECH. I’m going to talk to that teacher and hopefully help him with a new lesson plan.
People, don’t use tables. It is in some countries, ILLEGAL. Yes. You might use a table layout, in a browser it makes perfect sense, is readable, etc, for a blind persons screen reader it is broken up, makes no sense and is DISCRIMINATION against disabled people.
Standards are a bitch, keep up, or step down.
