I beg to disagree. There is no such thing as 'layout' in (X)HTML.
Ideally, there are no tables at all unless you want to present data
like in a spreadsheet. Not to mention that there should be as few divs
as possible. They're violated for layouts way too much. But yeah, I'm
being anal even though I don't care as much about this as I did a few
years ago when I was actively designing websites.
