I'd say that CSS is deffinately worth using. Most website visitors have a browser that supports CSS.

Unless it is VERY important that your site is viewable for everyone.

My guess is that an estimate of 80% are using some kind of CSS supportive browser.

With CSS you can do alot more than tables. You can work with layers, format the text layout, the layer appearans etc. It's also easier to control with javascripts when adding  effects to your page.

You should definately go with layers. But, tables do ahve their place (example when displaying a long list of database responses)

Hope this answers your question!
