(I was offline last week.)

Inasmuch as I prefer to look at tables recursively -- and so am not
fond of rowspan and colspan, I like this approach:

http://math.albany.edu/~hammond/mmlmisc/bordermxt.xhtml

which, I believe, should work with parenthesis stretching in browsers
supporting both MathML and CSS, including all reasonably current
mozillae.

http://math.albany.edu/~hammond/mmlmisc/bordermxt.html
is the html5 text/html morph.

P.S.  Am I correct in perceiving the border labels as not
mathematically semantic?  If so, probably the 2x2 outer array
should be an ordinary html table.
