I have never heard of a question to the W3C lists being "refused", Colin - can you please post the rejection message ?  Please note that your question, however, is not really about the validation service - the validator determines whether or not a page is valid by reference to the associated specifications, not by reference to whether "all the browsers [you have] tried cope with this OK".

As regards your underlying problem, at first sight it appears to result from the fact that you are trying to present the entries from 1250 to 1617 in column 1 & 2 of a table, and the entries from 1641 to 1972 in columns 4 & 5.  This seems an unnecessarily complicated approach.  Why not just present the first set in one table and the second set in a second table, with the two tables stacked horizontally and vertically aligned at the top ?

I sent the question below and it was refused.  If I can't send validator questions to the validator list then where do I send them?
This makes no sense whatsoever to me - I expected better from W3C.
