  • http://webdesign.about.com/od/layout/a/aa111102a.htm


Formatting

Formatting

  • Data doesn’t always make sense if read left-to-right or top-to-bottom

  • When there’s nesting/spanning, page can be difficult to figure out

  • Not as accessible

  • http://webdesign.about.com/od/layout/a/aa111102a.htm


Inflexible

Inflexible

  • If widths are specified, get a rigid table

  • When you mess with widths, can cause slower load times

  • http://webdesign.about.com/od/layout/a/aa111102a.htm


Slow load

Slow load

  • Table were meant to only be two-dimensional

  • Have to allow the entire table to load before being allowed to make changes

  • Every time visitors change a page, tables need to reload
