    Yes, which is why you should test in as many browsers, including multiple versions of each, as possible.

    You shouldn't use tables for layout though.
    Why tables for layout is stupid
    Why avoiding tables (for layout) is important

    Yes.
    Spreading knowledge, one newbie at a time.

    Learn CSS. | PHP includes | HTML Validator | CSS validator

    Remember people spend most of their time on other people's sites (so don't violate web design conventions).

    ...unless you're layout involves a table, in which case you really should use a table e.g. listing products in a shopping basket/cart.

    not using tables for layout is good but not using tables for tables is silly!
