I was reading an article on the internet and have been using tables design my websites.
However this article advises not to use them. http://webdesign.about.com/od/layout/a/aa111102a.htm ( one of the reasons being, it doesnt support good SEO )
So how do I create a section such as A BOX WITH ROUNDED EDGES ??? e.g. this forums, are enclosed in a box/table like with rounded well formatted edges
In the past I used to add a table/table(s) and format it with css such as
margin: 20px auto 0px auto;
border: 1px solid #000066;
border-radius: 8px 8px 8px 8px;
But without tables, how do i achieve this ?

No you shouldn't use them for layout, only for tabular data.
The old fashioned way was to use one or a series of images to create the box around a div.
Some newer browsers can use CSS3 to achieve this without the need to create individual images:
This link thought shows how both are achieved by using the switch in the top right:
