Mr. Chassot said: "ULs, OLs and DLs" and there was light. Look at the source code to see the pseudo-XML model, and the beautiful-in-its-simplicity markup of the actual table.
Reports (with a capital S) have come in that this model does not work in Opera 6 or IE/Mac. I will be working on this. Contributions of code and screenshots are welcome.
Update: I got it working in Moz1.1/win, IE5.0/win, and Opera6/win. Still broken on the Mac IE5.x
I cannot, however, stress strongly enough that tables do have their place in structural markup (markup pun not intended). What other things are formatted in tables in other parts of life?
There is a good page on
colgroup tags by Larry Coats. However, I still can't get Mozilla to style my column groups. Anybody know how? I ended up using the
:first-child pseudoclass for this one.
Other tables: train/airplane timetables, grade tables...
