Whether we use CSS or tables for layout is *not* the point - it's that it
linearizes correctly!  Same concept as correct or logical tab order.  As
you read a page, you want it to be read in a logical order.

Adding DIV's in a confusing order and putting in layout CSS is just as
confusing as bad layout tables.    Both require the author and or tool to
consider how the page will be rendered in a serial fashion, not just the 2
d visual rendering in a graphical browser.
