tables for layout

Hello all,
I just subscribed so please forgive me if this has been discussed
before. I tried searching the archive but it seems to be down.
All of the information out there says "avoid using tables for layout"
yet I see that even the webaim.org home page does exactly that. I've
tried using css positioning which worked great until I looked at it in
netscape (next time I'll check browser compatibility charts *before* I
do all that work!). I'm trying to replicate a current look & feel so
getting rid of columns isn't an option. Please please enlighten me.
