    Default Designing with tables

    In order to get that iPhone icons effect, it seems tables are the way to go unless you have some Samurai CSS skills.

    It seems that most people on the forum have abandoned, and even GoMobi uses tables for structure.

    Is the general consensus here that it's ok to use tables for mobile sites, or not?

    They're not best practice but an ironic part of best practice is to overlook it sometimes!

    Tables and JavaScript are both usable on most decent browsers so why shouldn't we?
