I  don't still understand the philosophy of tables for layout. They
suggest relations between parts of the page that don't exist in reality.

Should the guidelines also give examples how to avoid tables of layout
for comlex pagedesigns or link to complex pages without tables for
layout?

And I agree with Tina Holmboe we should end this discussion about misuse
of tables.
