DIV vs Tables - pros and cons?

Vote:
 
Does anyone have a opinion on which is the better approach for structuring layout in EPiServer?(or in general for that sake?) The samples use DIVs quite extensively, but is there a good reason for not using table-based layout? Complexity? Robustness? Browser compatibility? Flexibility? ...?

tables are bad from an accessibility point of view. Since data is structured in an unlogical way. Screenreaders also have a hard time reading a website that has lots and lots of tables. Tables should only be used to show tabular data.

There are specifications in the WCAG 1.0 that describe how you should use tables. Checkpoint 5.3 describes more about this: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/wai-pageauth.html#tech-avoid-table-for-layout
