Confused, Jukka.  When you sat "What is not OK is the 'table model'",
do you mean (because of the immediately preceding "In HTML 5, colspan
is OK") that "the table model is not OK in HTML 5" (which is how I
read your words) or that "the table model is not met by your markup",
where "your" = "Steven Delahunty's" ?  And if the former, in what way
is the table model not OK in HTML 5 ?
