Chapter 6. Tables > Introduction

Introduction

Print designers use grids to create compelling layouts. Using such a structure makes it easy to place elements into all sorts of layouts, from the front page of a newspaper to a movie poster to the cover of this book. It also makes the designs visually more appealing.

Even still, available tools had their limitations and as such designers overused tables to structure entire web pages.
