The code used by myContactForm.com places the form into tables. Tables were popular years ago and easy to use, however, they are slow for page loads and add a significant amount of un-necessary code. Could the programmers write a new script that generates updated code without tables?

Thank you for your message.

We are keeping the HTML table layout for now as CSS formatted layouts tend to break when placed within the hugely variable context of an existing layout within our user's websites. Also, CSS formatted forms may experience further problems when placed within an existing CSS layout. Additionally, cross-browser rendering tends to be less consistent when using CSS.

At this point more people still tend to understand tables and how to modify them versus people who understand altering a CSS layout.

You can however, convert your form layout into a CSS layout provided you do not change the individual field names and retain all of the proper form tags.
