I'm involved in redesigning a site that currently has a very high position in Google for our main keywords. We'd like to switch from tables to divs. Is there a risk that we'll lose position/ranking? We want to do everything we can to avoid that.

Search engines don't care if you use tables or divs for page formatting, but you want to make sure that you don't introduce coding errors into the redesign that may cause search engines to skip over any indexable content. Many people recommend using a W3C-compliant validator to ensure that doesn't happen.

If you're keeping the site architecture and the content as well as all the URLs the same, then just switching from tables to divs should not have any affect on search engines or your placement.
