Um, what kind of tables are you talking about? A real physical table? HTML tables? Some other kind of table that I don't know about?

Oh, nevermind, I looked at which forum this is in. Hold on, two seconds.

tables are easy. follow that tutorial and you'll know it all. here's a basic table

hacked

you just made your first basic table, yay! then you can make the border and thickness of the tables, and the padding and spacing. then when you get really advanced you can make a whole organized website out of tables by making more tables in tables and stuff like that! tables are so much better than frames, and more organized too.

Keep in mind that some older browsers do not properly understand iFrames.

EDIT:
It is also good to keep in mind that tables are becoming passe in the modern era of web design. Some types of data (repeated lists and whatnot) are still well suited to tables, however, much of the layout work that was previously done with tables is now handled exclusively by CSS. I still use tables for some layout, but it isn't the modern-best-practice approach.

indeed. and if you make an iframe wrong it'll crash your computer =/

frames are simple. just anymore they're kind of tacky.

Nah, i made a few sites with just HTML, and i suffered through it. I rather have the gratification of knowing i used pure html instead of a program to do it for me. And i dont have 600 bux laying around.
