Uh, yeah, there's a nifty new browser out called "NCSA Mosaic" which
supports tables....

             Tables since
Platform     version #...     Notes
Windows      2.0.0a8          Currently our best implementation,
                              had them before Netscape, (interesting
                              to compare the two), etc.
Mac          2.0.0b1          A VERY close second to Windows.
                              Actually had tables in 2.0.0 alphas,
                              but I can never keep them all straight,
                              and believe me, we had a lot more
                              internal alpha releases than you all
                              ever saw...
X            2.4              But they didn't support arbitrary
                              markup in the table cells, and
                              unfortunately, they still don't.
