Combination layouts

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 19 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

I’m looking for information on best practices and tips and tricks on combining tables with CSS layout. A site I’m working on has a CSS layout and a fair amount of tabular data. I’m sure I saw such a document once, but I don’t recall where.

And example of what I’m interested in is how table widths affect and overflow CSS layouts in various situations. Any pointers?

As far as optimisation goes, I know there were some great tips and recommendations in "Speed Up Your Site" by Andrew B. King. If you have a copy, take look at chapter 4 and on page 186 and 187. I'm not too sure about table widths and overflow though. I'll have a look around and see what I can find.
