Home Forums CSS When should you use tables? Re: When should you use tables?

I think the description of a spreadsheet was for illustrative purposes. It’s not like people are saying you need to only use it for data you had in spreadsheets but for the type of data spreadsheets hold. Which, is quite a lot of stuff.

Like @virtual said – everything you have spoken about there is all perfect for a table because it would work in excel :D Unless you want to do some sort of super awesome layout – a table is perfect in those situations.
