Retiring HTML tables

Well, after many years, I have finally decided to phase out tables in my html code (except for tabular data). I held out for many years as the browsers simply would not agree on how to display the CSS properly and it didn't make sense to create different style sheets for every browser, browser version and operating system.

Over the last 2 months I have been experimenting and been pleased to discover that Internet Explorer 7/8, Firefox, Safari and Crome finally agree on how to display CSS. I even found that IE 6 isn't too far behind.t

One tool I did use to help deal with browser issues was the CSS browsers Selector, which works great and has both a PHP and javascript version. But for the latest version of our Darkstar Media website, I didn't even have to use that once, which was very refreshing.
