Huh, I'm late, ain't I?

> Tables or CSS for forms?

IMHO, it depends. A complex form might by all means be realized with a
(simple) table, as long as the structure is and remains clear. But, a simple
form for a blog comment, for example, could be easily marked up via

      <legend />
      <input />
      <input />
      <textarea />

and styled via

  label { display: block; }

I note this because this simple kind of styling is often overlooked.
