That's pretty cool. I had know idea  that could be accomplished with  
CSs. It would be great to see that incorporated into browser default  
stylesheets: especially if it could be applied to select tables over  
a certain dimension. Of course the browsers would first need to  
provide less buggy support for it.

I would really like to see this as part of the HTML5 recommendation  
(in terms of default or optional behavior at the user's discretion).  
Even if it's already inherent in HTML and CSS recommendations, making  
it explicit as a recommended behavior would be good for  
interoperability.

Take care,
Rob
