I KNOW, I KNOW —you've been hearing for
years now that Tables Are Evil, and that nobody
should ever use them in page layout. And that's
broadly true: Tables shouldn't be used for layout.
On the other hand, laying out tables is a i ne and
ot en overlooked pursuit. At er all, sometimes
you have a table of data that you need to present.
No sense doing so half-heartedly!
In this chapter, you explore ways to use table
structure to your styling advantage as well as
turning tables into entirely dif erent visualiza-
tions, like maps or bar graphs. Hopefully by the
time you're done, you'll see that tables are just
like any other collection of markup—a rich
source of styling possibilities.
