Hope you all are fine. I am a newbie in web designing and right now I am confused about few things that I am hoping you guys can help me.

When I want to design a web page, should I use tables to organize the layout or should I use CSS?

Kind Regards

I would recommend learning XHTML & CSS. CSS is a powerful way to style your webpage.

I'm sure this topic has been discussed countless times on the interweb.

Fwiw, I will always suggest using semantically correct elements with css to layout a page's content. If you use tables to layout non tabular content you will far more often than not end up using more html code than is needed to produce a layout which results in longer page load times and makes the page more difficult to maintain especially once you start including nested tables.
