Feeling the table love

Roger Johansson has an excellent post over on his blog on how to make tables more usable in the modern world of CSS. The point is not to avoid them all together, but make sure to address the issues they cause with accessibility, usability, and with your ability to repurpose content.

The post purposefully sidesteps the question of whether or not you should throw out tables completely for layout purposes, as the CSS advocates argue you ought to. This works well, and allows him to focus on the right question: "It's about using tables for their original purpose: marking up tabular data."
