Also, Opera supports the rendering of XML tables through CSS2.

From CSS2, Section 17.5:

  Although CSS2 doesn't define how the number of spanned rows or columns
  is determined, a user agent may have special knowledge about the
  source document; a future version of CSS may provide a way to express
  this knowledge in CSS syntax.

So, if you have a proposal, put it ontht table!
