Is this really true 
(<http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/current-work.html#tables>):

> /Tables/ describe the layout of tables: rows, columns, cells and

Since the CSS2 model isn't that great. An example are the 'height' and 
'width' properties, that (should) behave different on tables per the 
specification (done for backwards compatibility with HTML).

Some other table related issues are not addressed by CSS2, if there 
comes no new working draft, will we have to wait for CSS4 before we can 
use the COLSPAN and ROWSPAN attributes from HTML4.01 in CSS?
