I decided to hold off commenting on the news that Lockergnome were dropping their CSS layout in favour of a table based alternative until I had seen the new design for myself. I figured that they were probably just going to move to a transitional tables/CSS combination design with tables used to bypass some of the more taxing cross-browser issues. I think the following code snippet from their new front page speaks for itself:
A blockquote for indentation, inside a table that exists purely to apply a width, following on from two empty paragraphs for added vertical space? It’s like CSS margin properties never happened. Welcome back to 1996.
