“Interactive Tabular Data”
20th September 2003
I’m comfortable using tables for forms. My point of view is that they are interactive tabular data.
I’d never thought of them like that before, but that view point certainly makes a lot of sense.
I recently contributed my own opinion on trying to create “semantic” forms to an interesting discussion on SimpleBits:
... When an HTML page incorporates forms it starts to move away from being a “structural document” and towards being a “logical interface” instead—once I start working with forms I switch my focus from semantics to accessibility and usability. Since these share many of the same requriements as semantics (use proper header tags etc) I don’t feel too guilty about using divs instead of paragraphs.
