Tables vs Div vs Spans

Question by samyb8

I have always heard that it is better to avoid using <table> in HTML.

However, I encountered a situation in which a table would make my life easier when building a page that shows multiple products and their characteristics.

Should I try to hack it so that I do not need a table, or should I just go with a table?

Answer by Starx

No, you should not avoid the TABLE concept. Learn/Use it to display tabular data, not web layouts.

Learn about those elements from the W3C.

  1. Tables
  2. Div
  3. Span
