This comment amazes me, I understand that I'm fairly old but I thought that around 2008 we got people away from using nested tables for layout to using semantic HTML + CSS because of accessibility (for humans accessing with different devices but even machines). I guess like the article says:

Perhaps it's time to start linking to old A List Apart articles?

- Sensible Forms: A Form Usability Checklist https://alistapart.com/article/sensibleforms/

- High Accessibility Is Effective Search Engine Optimization https://alistapart.com/article/accessibilityseo/

- A Brief History of Markup https://alistapart.com/article/a-brief-history-of-markup/

But even from this year:

- Conversations with Robots: Voice, Smart Agents & the Case for Structured Content https://alistapart.com/article/conversations-with-robots/

It's always a good time to link to "A List Apart".
