Is the div overlay technique a good use?

I had this conversation with someone about using tables and div layers.

I always have used and still am using tables to build websites. I see this as a popular thing with myspace where they make a background and make a table border, then use CSS to position that table to its designated area of the background.

My question is, is it good to use? does it vary from different browsers as far as functionality goes?

Any opinion is good, with me.

Talking help.

you can do it like that, but alot of people use firefox, and ie. so it may or maynot look the same on each, personally, i make my layout, code it, and for the content i do a image overlay (html coding) that makes the text overlay the image so it still has the text over the empty image (text area) i want it to be, then there is no tables so it doesnt look UnPro. and it still has its sleak look to it, here is the image overlay code if anyone needs it and doesnt know it.

It works and looks the same in either FireFox or Internet Exploror

Text Over Images.
<TABLE BORDER="0" cellpadding="0" CELLSPACING="0">

<TD WIDTH="image width here in pixles" HEIGHT="image heigth here in pixles" BACKGROUND="image url here" VALIGN="top">

<FONT SIZE="+1" COLOR="black">your font over the image here</FONT></TD>

Never judge a book by its cover.
