I´d like to know..
What should I use divs or table to create an online product catalog?
Which would be the better way?

Hi I normally use table for my web.
I just try to use div for making table by dreamweaver.
After test for a while what I found is
Table is easy to auto adjust wide and height in Dreamweaver, you just drag some margin, but you can't do it in <div>
for multiple column <table> command seem to be good for me
Hope this help you.

I’m sure you could find use cases for either method but divs are typically more versatile in terms of styling. They are also easier to work with when positioning other elements.
Here is an interesting post on using divs vs tables,
Hope that helps,

If you have tabular data that is related through rows and columns, use a table. For anything else, including a grid-like presentation, use appropriate semantic elements, usually DIV or UL/LI. The topic has been discussed extensively here and elsewhere, so why not use the search function and read what we said last time round?
