Goofy question about Datagrids

Hi Richmond,

I'll give you an 'improperly formulated' explanation of my own experience
with datagrids.  They are more complicated to use (at first).  So most of
the time I still use a table field for everything except where the nice
appearance of a datagrid gives the design a polished and professional
look.  The alternating row color is pleasing to the eye, and practical for
viewing 'wide' data.  Functionally, a datagrid is easier to rearrange
column order than a roll-your-own table script.  I'm sure there are
datagrid advocates, but I still like the simplicity of the table field for
most things.
