    What according to you is more better and easy, code using div layouts or tables layouts for designing. Please share your opinion...

    It depends where you are using.DIV works better than the Tables as Table doesn't look good every where.So, its the designing tactic where to use what.

    If the world was perfect the answer would be neither and use HTML5 semantics with css3 styling but the world isnt perfect so... If you are serious about career in web development use divs - first of all its an agreed standard, its flexible, and using tables for design is just lame.

    Tables should be used for presenting table data.

    My opinion is DIV tags is better compare to tables. Designing Your website using DIV tags its looking good, also you will get less browser comparability issues and easily modify your website.

    Always DIVS and CSS for layout.

    Tables were a way back in the day when we had no other option than to use what was essentially a fancy spreadsheet to lay things out.

    Gone are the days of slicing up your graphics into a million pieces.

    Tables are fine when you need to provide a "table" of data.

    ....are you asking because you are using Fireworks or Photoshop and exporting from there?

    DIVs are the way to go as tables are so old fashioned now. However, tables are helpful for - erm - tabling data fields. You can set up a DIV to look the same way but for a bunch of data, using a table is much faster. But IMO, that's about it for tables.

    I'd vote Divs, too. There are tables[/U] that are not always so good, but it depends on the design, I guess. Still, I'd use Divs. :)

    This discussion has ended 8 years ago.. Tables were never meant to be used for layout.

    Oh, and btw, you can't say 'more better' (just being anal about grammar here).
