There was a debate, it was just a suggestion not an order or a request.
Feel free to post the way you want to, but if we loose track of what's
going on in the thread, you know why. :)
I'll also recommend against frames, especially if you're concerned with
die-hard V3 browser users... although those browsers aren't HTML 4.0
compatible anyway, so even tables can act a little weird.
You can use HTML tables the way you are using them, the only thing is
you have to consider that the elements in a table are going to
interact. They should be built so that when they interact, they don't
interfere with each other. It's completely possible.
CSS is a more sophisticated alternative, but using tables alone is a
completely valid way to achieve it. Most websites use a little of both.
