The reason for continuing debate is very simple:
there are different people on the list, they do have different experience and 
If you continue to code in Tables - you do favour both to Microsoft and 
Netscape which together *invented* _broken table model_
If you code in CSS - there are some chances that your work will be better 
accessible by different categories of users.
It's not absolutely necessary (that your layout with CSS will be betetr than 
with Tables) - but it worth trying...
One important resaon which many people on this list tend to ignore is *HTML 
page size*. With all elements encoded with CSS, page size is much smaller.
Please do not ignore people using dialup - broadband access is still very 
expensive, even in some regions of US.
