Personally, I don't use Tables for layouts. But when I do need them for tabular data, I use CSS to style them.
The practice of dragging table handles in DW should be avoided. It produces very messy code. Also, Design View is not reliable. What you see in DW is often a big departure from what the page really looks like in browsers.
