Have you ever used tables in your articles? These days most people haven’t.
HTML tables were used a lot a few years ago but nowadays most people have forgotten about them.
Maybe it is because designers used to have to design web sites by using tables in the early days. Since this was a very confusing way to style web sites it created a rather negative feeling towards using tables. No matter what the actual reason was, tables are still a great way to present content.
They make is so easy at presenting information that once you get the hang of it you never want to have to miss them again.
