<div style='display:table-row'>
  <span>
    foo
    <div style='display:table-cell'>bar</div>
    foo
  </span>
</div>

The result is a table with one cell, containing an inline split around
another table.  This might technically be proving something slightly
different, but it's good enough for me.
