Am I Using Tables Appropriately?

P: n/a
I've heard you're not suppose to use tables for layout control - but
many do anyway.

If you look at my page http://njbassonline.com/ you will see what I'm
trying to do.

My question is: if I'm using tables inappropriately, how else would I
accomplish the news area and weather area groupings? I tried <p> and
<div> but I kept getting spaces where I didn't want them...

Any other critiques would be helpful

Thanks

The sunset-sunrise info is tabular, that's fine. But using tables for
non-tabular content lessens the usefulness of a correctly used table.

Not sure what you're saying, but your <p class="colorcenter"> gives the
effect without tables. Why not use <div class="colorcenter">?

If you're worried that the table and the div won't be flush together, try
putting the table inside the div. Set the dimensions as you like them.
