Absolutely not - quite the contrary! Tables are the markup to be used for tabular data. But you do need to use proper data table markup, which very few people seem to know how to do... Start with the difference between table headers (<th>) and table data (<td>): without that you don't have a proper data table.

Tables for layout are - well, not evil, but definitely to be avoided. If you do use them, they should never have any table headers, only table "data" in <td> cells.

Now... show me a shopping cart without any tabular data.... anyone?
