I think it is  a fine idea to move away from tables. In the SVG access note -
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG-access - we used div elements, containing pre that
contained code... and a style sheet.

  Hello,

  What do people think about moving away from tables for XML examples
  and in W3C technical reports in general? Editors and authors seem to
  copy one cell tables from XML 1.0 first edition [1]:

  <table cellpadding='5' border='1' bgcolor='#80ffff' width='100%'>

  There's an illustration using divs at the bottom of [2].
  XML-Signature [3] has another method working with pre elements.
