Content Style Guide: Tables

One of the best ways to ensure that our website is user-friendly is to follow industry best practices, keep the content focused on key user tasks, and keep our content up-to-date at all times.

Use tables only for tabular data.

Tables should ideally only be used to display tabular data and not as a layout option. Consult the Web Services Librarian if you need a new layout option.
