I'm looking for examples that do exactly this. Do you happen to have some? 
While I use CSS now and dumped font tags last year (I'm still housecleaning 
my own sites, so there could be a couple here and there), I'm still using 
table cells to ensure the formatting for 4.x browsers, for example. I 
wonder about sites that no longer use table cells and instead use CSS for 
layout also.

I'd really like to see as many as possible and potentially cite them as 
examples for an upcoming article I'm going to write.
