Tables for browser neutrality

P: n/a
With the code that you looked at: do the authors explicitly say they use
table to accomplish browser neutrality? It may be their intention, but I
doubt whether that's what they actually achieve. Maybe their pages render
similarly on the major PC browsers, but handhelds too?

Just my 2c worth. Don't concern yourself with pixel perfect similarity
between browsers. Just render interesting content in a presentable layout.
Mark the logical elements as css classes and let stylsheets do the

Tables should be used to present tabular content, like an adress list.

Don't forget to change the Browser Caps section of the web.config so that
the html output is suitable for each browser type.

I have been designing my ASP.NET forms by just placing the controls on the
form. However, i noticed that some people used a HTML table as the parent
control, and then placed the ASP.NET server controls within the cells of
the table , to make the output browser neutral. Is this a trick that is
necessary to make ASP.NET consistently, (more or less), in any standard
browser , including Mozilla ?
