That doesn't make it pretty usefull as an element... sheesh.

Yes I suppose theoretically you are right, the outcome would be to mess
the table. I suppose I should use display:inline-block  (this works for
elements in IE, besides colgroup and col).

Anyway, I just wanted to verify that I can style the element as I
wanted, but I think in it's current implementation in browsers, it's not
even an element...
