Does anyone REALLY need that level of detail?  Are you telling me you have 8
different parallel documents for each tabled page, one with forms and
subtables and width, one with forms and subtables but no widths,  one with
forms but no subtables and no widths, etc?!?  I can't beleive it.

Just pick a relatively low-level, common, spec-compliant table format, and
send it to everyone.  People using Cello 1.0 will be screwed but so what.

It's these da#& user-agent-negotiation people (YAHOO - THIS MEANS YOU) that
are still sending me non-table versions even though Spyglass Mosaic 2.1 does
tables very well thank you.  Quite annoying.
