Hello Olivier,

I don't think that there was HTML code used to produce the 
table - in fact, that's why we used a GIF instead of actual
HTML markup. Rendering varies and we wanted to be sure to
convey the same information on any system able to render GIF.

The HTML spec does not specify how markup must be rendered,
although it may suggest renderings.
