The fact that CSS3 Tables (and Positioning) modules are missing is pretty 
known. I think Bert was working on at least one of them, no?..
Would be nice to have an update on that.

To clarify my position once more: Tables is rather specific stuff, I would 
prefer not to use them at all.
Now, do you see my point?
If you don't use tables, there is no reason to worry about CSS3 tables 
module. :-)

Is it HTML or XML?
XML works fine with Mozilla, as I mentioned.
But I have some problems with HTML and re-defined TR/TD/TABLE tags.
BTW: can you send me your example, please?

New season of X-Files is quite interesting :-))
I like it a lot.
