Note that much of the obsolete stuff that browsers have to support is not  
yet defined in detail, especially things that affect rendering. E.g., the  
various attributes for table elements that affect layout are not yet  
defined either, though should be in due course. (Although this prolly  
depends on the CSS WG defining a "proper" table layout model they can hook  
into.)
