A simple table definition would be:

table.main {
border: 5px solid double;
border-color: #006400;
}

CSS is often used by lots of web developers with the help of table based design to mange the tables properties and some other things in yoour web pages. Because we know that without CSS tablesless design is possible.

Believe it or not, tables are still actively used in HTML5.. with large data sets there simply isn't anything better than tables. Especially if you think about exporting data to CSV files.

You can use multiple div's inside a div container. Float left all the divs.

This only works easily when you have a fixed width on the container and divs inside, but can be done.

If the content going into the table is tabular type data, then use tables. That's what they were designed for.

Is it really necessary for you to create a table using CSS? because your just making things difficult, why not use HTML

Code:
<table>
<tr>
    <th>Company</th>
    <th>Contact</th>
    <th>Country</th>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Alfreds Futterkiste</td>
    <td>Maria Anders</td>
    <td>Germany</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Centro comercial Moctezuma</td>
    <td>Francisco Chang</td>
    <td>Mexico</td>
  </tr>
</table>

That will give you a table with three columns and two rows. Why bother using CSS when you can do it in HTML, and CSS is for designing the page, not for mark up.

Please note, you HTML is the language which you will need to use for designing, you can use CSS for it. You will need to use <table>, <td? , <tr> tags while designing the table in the HTML. The structure will be as below -

<table>
<tr>
<td>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

tr tag is for table row and td is for the table data. You can define the contents as per your requirement.
