In a lot of cases where table based layouts would currently be used,
a combination of display:table* and ::outside may work.

However, eventually there comes a point where a requirement for
presentation control would require awkward a change to CSS and a 
more presentational language may be more appropriate.  For example,
where faithful rendition of a fixed layout is required, the best 
solution is probably to use tagged PDF and use the tagging to overlay
the semantic structure back onto a purely presentational design.
