When should I use tables?

I am really confused, I saw it used in newletters for layout, on web sites for content, sometimes <div> tags are used for content and layout....  so CONFUSING!!!

I think you should avoid using them for layouts.

Tables should generally be used for table type content. Some developers use them in newsletters so they're better supported by different email clients. This is a hack, meaning it's not a proper way of doing things.

Div's (div tag) should be generally used for layout.
