The theory I've heard is that SEs see more content than tables, cells, etc. and thus content is presented in a cleaner and easier to read format.
Have any of you used CSS for SEO, and have you seen evidence of improved results (in the SERPs)?
Go to the author's home page and see how much CSS, and how many <table>s they have.
Resize the pages to see how well they reflow. Are they fluid?
Do they look good?
If you can't make any sense out of them, or they don't look clean, or they use tables (no matter how much they apologize), you probably shouldn't buy their books.
