Can any one tell the merits and demerits of table concept in integrating a html layout when compared with DIV concept

Here are some links for your reading pleasure.

If this is homework, then you really need to do your own work as it is against TSDN policy to post homework assignments here. If not, did you search google before posting here? That is where I got those two links, in the top 5 returns.

Tables for layout is stupid.

Tables are a predetermined layout which you must conform to. They are less flexible and the contents cannot move from their assigned positions or overlap. Images must be sliced up to fit in a cell. Tables are slower to load. Tables have fewer styling controls.

Two things. It's the W3C, not wc3. And <div> is not a "concept" but a standard HTML element that has been around for many years.
