I hate them mostly? I've sent HTML emails before and they're a pain in the ass because they don't fully implement CSS. I've heard arguments that grid layouts are a step backwards because they put layout information back into HTML.

I'm not really a web designer so this isn't really my debate. I'm just pointing out that "HN does it" isn't really a strong argument. Something might be the best available option for some particular task but still not optimal for a whole host of reasons. The point remains <table> tags do carry semantic information so it's useful when possible to restrict them to situations where that semantic information is correct.




I was never convinced by this this argument (It's just a DOM node after all) and found the `crusade` mentality back in the early 2000s a bit immature. I respect your point of view but we don't agree
