Presenting Content with Tables
Tables are a powerful tool for presenting tabular data and for laying out text and graphics on a page.
Many designers use tables to lay out web pages. Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 provides two ways to view and manipulate tables: Standard mode, in which tables are presented as a grid of rows and columns, and Layout mode, which allows you to draw, resize, and move boxes on the page while still using tables for the underlying structure (see Laying Out Pages in Layout Mode).
You can also lay out your pages using CSS positioning (see Laying Out Pages with CSS).
