Default Table Conversion

Hi everyone. My first post here. I'm a longtime (if infrequent) user of the old CompuServe InetPub forum.

My sub-site is really a "blog" but started before there was such a word. Even though I have used CSS1 for years, I just got to figuring that I might want to use CSS instead of tables. I'm talking about the big table making up the bulk of the page. Conceptually, the site really is tabular in many ways. There are three columns, firt column is icon indicating whether it has audio or plain text, second indicating geographic region, and third a summary of the news article.

Any reason to abandon tables? If so, my strategy is to start playing with margins, but is this the right approach? If not, can anyone make suggestions or even show examples of similar sites having such a layout?


PS, oops, I left out the link: http://www.overanalysis.org/globdiv/index.html
