There was a time when we all used tables to design whole layout, later we started using div to style the layout.
It is because of search engine robot. As it divides the table into three parts like header, content and footer and only follows the data inside the content. That’s what I learned when I was using tables to create layouts.
Even though usage of tables is still a need to maintain data sheets, we have come up with simple table design. Which creates a table without using html elements like table, td, tr etc.
