Tables for layout is considered a Bad Thing (TM) by web purists, a label
I would happily stick unto myself. CSS (and XHTML) is the way to go. If
you need help implementing your "professional layout" using CSS, please ask.

More than a problem of certain browsers, the problem is that you do not
separate content and style. Thus updating the layout becomes harder than
it needs to be, as does updating of the content.

For something as small as the gnubg website, I think this is not a big
issue - but if we believe in web standardisation (and I do, strongly),
we should practice (in both meanings of that word) what we preach.

Yes, yes, and yes

are also part of the HTML standard(s). But they are supposed to be used
for tabular data, not for positioning stuff on the screen.
