Depends what you mean by combined layout. For the purposes of implementing
design, I would use .css wherever you possibly can, and not use html
elements for formating.

However...

Structurally, <table>s are *fine* IMHO when presenting _data_ in tabular
format - first quarter results spreadsheet or a football league table for
example. In situations where rows and columns are just that - rows and
columns, tables are the logical and structural way to proceed. But when
doing this, be sure to use CSS classes to define the different types of cell
in your table, rather than the depracated bgcolor, border and other such
attributes.
