It's not an actually element in the DOM, so it's not really accurate  
to say element. They are anonymous boxes in the CSS visual formatting  
model. See here for more detail than you ever wanted:

http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#anonymous-boxes

These anonymous boxes let the table render, but they do not affect CSS  
selectors or DOM scripting.
