Search engines will still read it. However, one disadvantage of overly-complex nested tables for layout is that the code-to-content ratio is big, which will drop the page lower in search engine rankings. A CSS layout usually gives a much smaller code-to-content ratio and therefore better search engine rankings. There are many other reasons why CSS is usually better than nested tables for layout, search this site for heaps of info!
