Hi guys so I was wondering how I could create a webpage that would automatically increase in size if more text were to be entered to it. I have looked at various methods and tried the css div method in which you have two container classes and you simply have one encapsulated into the other so they both increase in size. But I have only looked briefly at using tables to achieve my means and I was wondering whether it is frowned upon or not to use tables instead of css divs. I see several websites using tables and wondered whether it would be a decent way to create websites. Thanks a lot!

If there's no easy/fast/less-cluttered way to achieve what you need, then use tables.

Otherwise, don't.

Be skeptical towards their use but don't fall in the other extreme too (of never ever using tables. Sometimes they're just fine)
