I would go with neither tables nor frames.

You should look into CSS layouts.



To address the question, however, I would choose tables over frames.  Search engines have trouble indexing sites with frames, and they are additionally difficult to use, especially if you want to send someone a link to a specific page.

Tables avoid this problem, but have many of their own, including many accessabillity problems that could be reduced by using CSS layouts with nicer underlying code.
