There has been a metamorphosis in the field of web design and web development ever since the impact of web 2.0 technology. Developers started shifting to more flexible and user friendly techniques which are compliant to web standards.
When we talk about web development, the only thing which strikes many web developers is whether to use divs or tables in their web layouts. Websites that are developed today are more inclined towards the div-based structures rather than a table based structure.
Tables and DIV’s are an intrinsic part of web design. Web developers have decreased the usage of tables and made a gradual increase in DIV usage to reduce the complexity in coding and increase semantic standards in their layouts.
We have made an attempt to discuss some of the common problems encountered in web design. We shall divide the article into 3 major parts and discuss in detail. The first part would give a brief introduction about the design basics of tables and divs. Second shall discuss on CSS and tips on writing clean and semantic code and the final part shall discuss their pros and cons.
