«There is a spectrum, from "clearly desirable behaviour," to "possibly dodgy behavior that still makes some sense," to "clearly undesirable behavior." We try to make the latter into warnings or, better, errors. But stuff that is in the middle category you don’t want to restrict unless there is a clear way to work around it.» Eric Lippert, May 14, 2008
There are only 0.03% internet users that use IE6 (soure: "Can I use" usage table[^]). So I think if Code Project update there CSS whitout table tags if not needed, this percentage will be lower than 0.001%.
It can be used - as you've seen. Though tables are meant for displaying tabular data such as a grid, but that doesn't mean you cannot use it for layouting. Most folks uses tables for layout because their CSS skills aren't good or to support ancient browsers.
unlike css, tables-for-layouts works in html email (and inasmuch common practice).
- same source translates well to almost any browser, old or new.
- so why use something that only works some of the time when there is another way works all of the time?
anyway, in too many case css is like racing stripes on a car, while kiddies think it looks cool, in some places it's just wrong, and they don't make the car go any faster either.
Sin tack ear lol

Tables were used for layout for 15 years before CSS came. Just because something is new, doesn't always mean that it is better. There's no reason to wrinkle ones nose at "old" technologies just because something "new" is available.
I still consider tables superior to CSS as far as layout is concerned. It's not because I don't know CSS, just because I don't like it!

Yes, tables are! Unless you're only targeting mobile devices. In my organization, there are still people using IE 8 and many of the applications I developed were for IE 6 because a couple of years ago, people were still using it. I won't rewrite for the sake of it and some of my tabled applications still look good on phones.
