Tables Are Bad, Mmmkay?

A couple of weeks ago I got into a heated “discussion” with a fellow dev about the use of tables in HTML. His argument went something like:

“Tables for layout are bad!”

Which I countered with:

“Agreed, but using tables for tabular data is both correct and DDA compliant.”

Which was met with:

“Tables are BAD!

How’s about that for nerd snobbery? I fancied debating the guy on how IE is improving with regards to standards compliance but I fear he would’ve hit meltdown.
