I understand that many people believe it to be bad practice to use tables to get a website skin to look like they want it to, I am fine with that. What I don't understnad is how people can expect website skins to look the smae without the use of tables in them. Table a look at most div based 2+ column websites. They have the content (or perhaps the menu) column longer than the others with a solid color bachground and think it looks nice?
Perhaps I am mistaken, but I don't think there is a way to easily get all the columns to be the same height without using tables (and if anyone has a quick example of how to make the divs work like that I would be more than happy to take a look at it).
So, now onto the debate.
Do you think it is better to use HTML tags whenever possible (including things like <center> and tables)? Or do you think it is best to try and go for the pure CSS approach? Why?
