html 5 and div tags

I created an email template using just div tags versus table cells. It displays fine in template view, but once I send a test email the message does not display correctly. Should I stick to using table tags only versus divs?

Template view will be fine because your viewing in a browser, but when you send it to outlook or another email program they dont know how to/wont render correctly. You have to think back to early 90s html and use tables for layout and styling. CM has good resources to compatibility such as:
