Re: Seybold column: Why Tables for Layout Is Stupid
Yet, this is only one web site. It would be interesting to learn the pros and cons of nest tables versus CSS and how that may affect technical content development.
From the perspective of an occasional web designer, I can tell you CSS is advantageous for a lot of reasons from a writing standpoint. You can vary styles based on media and accessibility, as a small example. One stylesheet is applied for screen viewing, another for print. There are some features in place that also make it more useful for those with screen readers; nested tables are horrible for that sort of thing.
