There is no prohibition of tables, And I use CSS to format tables.

What is discouraged is using tables to create overall page margins and other website elements that are now covered nicely by CSS.

But there is nothing wrong with using tables if you need a rigid structure that won't fall apart when the browser window size changes.

You can set the number of columns in tables by doing one of the following:

- Use the colspan="2" attribute on rows that need only one wide column.

- Start a new table with only one column where you need only one column.

- Put a <br /> tag between td tags for an empty cell.
