I have been using layers for everything on my pages.

Can tables be used instead? Are tables better for compatability with all screen resolutions?

Thank you,
Bob

Tables are much easier to work with and will easily adjust to your screen resolution when you use precentages. Layers are much more flexible in moving around the screen. They both have advantages. My recommendation is tables just because of the screen resultion issues. When you build a page at 1024X768 and use absolute positioning with layers then the layer will move on an 800X600 resolution and may not be where you intended it to be.
