All this is why the old "only use tables for layout" argument keeps coming up over and over: strip away the overheated rhetoric and obvious link-baiting, and you find the core of a real need. Because as powerful as CSS can be, table cells do certain things very easily that CSS makes very, very hard. Cells stretch vertically, keeping equal heights as a matter of their intrinsic nature. They stay out of each others' way, while still being allowed to sit next to each other and use any sizing dimensions. They tie their layout to their parent elements, and vice versa.There are no equivalents in CSS. There have been various very clever attempts to replicate bits and pieces of those capabilities using CSS. What CSS does, it does very well: if you don't need equal-height layout blocks, then no problem. If you do, it's a massive pain. Clever techniques provide substitutes, but can't replace what tables already do.

game to watch. Congratulations to the Steelers. That 100-yard
interception return was the longest play in Super Bowl history.
At half-time, Bruce Springsteen sounded like he had just made that 100-
yard run. His voice was gone. He skipped the refrains most of the
time, apparently trying to catch his breath. I think he's getting too
old to be bouncing around the stage. "Glory Days" was a fitting
finish to the show. They've passed him by...
