Today I saw a question Why are people making tables with divs? Which have no linked with any programming language (including client side javascript or others). It is pure HTML/CSS based question.

I wonder if it suited at UX site not Programmers? But it get lot of upvotes and answers so I assuming it allowed under some criteria. What could be the criteria of allowing this question?


It's not a UX question.

The question is not asking about the UX of tables, but why data is laid out in what looks like tables but doesn't actually use the <table> structure.

  • Well I think still better suited to UX instead of programmers as question deals with table vs div with display:table attitude. Which is more suitable there. Is not a programmers site should deals only directly/undirectly programming related questions ? Mar 31 '15 at 10:49

    @kuldeep.kamboj - UX is not concerned with how you code up your page/form to display your data, but with what structure you use to display the data. So UX will be involved in the decision to use a table, but not how you actually code up that table.
