[thelist] Tables vrs. CSS for search engines

Woo! That's a load of bunk. Some search engines might have a hard time
indexing content buried within a nested table structure, but in the 6
years I've been submitting my sites to the various major search engines,
the fact that some content was built within tables has never caused my
request for indexing to be refused...

Where are her facts backing up this claim?

If "search engines do not search tables" there would be a *lot* less
content on Google. :-P

[snip] She told me today that search engines do 
not search tables, and that all sites should therefor be designed purely

using style sheets. Does anyone know if this is true?
