You're right.  They are!

I still achieve this effect with tables.  In a sense, it is tabular
information (with the implied column headings of 'label' and
'response').  I've seen others mark this up as a definition list and
then style the heck out of it, but that looks far more hackish to me
than a table in this case.  Even CSS diehards like me realize that
tables still have a place in markup.  And this is one such place.

I say stick to your guns, but there will probably be three replies after
me suggesting some obfuscated markup alternative and 6Kb of styles.
