Agreed. Maybe a little pragmatism would be wise.

While avoiding tables when css offer a better solution is a Good Thing, if
the code for a table-less design is more complex (and maybe less reliable)
than using a table, why choose complexity over simplicity? It would be
better to adopt a pure css design because "the css solution is better"
rather than because "tables are a Bad Thing." In design matters, I believe
there is a saying that if you choose to break the rules, that's OK, but
you need to know what the rules are and why you are breaking them.
