Importing Dreamweaver files into Wordpress site

Using the Importer 2 plug-in and selecting <blockquote> as my starting point for each web page, I was able to import almost all of my files into a newly designed and updated Wordpress site. Yeah! My question is, if I also remove <table> and just use the content within it, will that cause the content format to break in the long run? I have done some, and so far so good, but what about the long term? Thanks.

Tables have one specific purpose.  That is to display tabular data in rows & columns (charts, spread sheets). 

  • Ordinary content inside tables is a mess for speech readers (usability problem).
  • Tables are not responsive on small devices.  Mobile device users will need to scroll horizontally to see content (bad user experience).
  • Tables should not be used for layout.

Besides, your WordPress Theme already uses CSS styled layouts.
