    I don't think you quite understand what is going on. In what way does recoding a table based layout as semantic HTML differ from your suggestion? In fact, what is your suggestion?

    Logic without the fatal effects.

    if you dont even know what the suggestion is, then why disagree with it by saying things like "divs are not the way to go"?

    this is why i never contribute... because when I give advice away for free, it gets criticized by people who dont even understand it; but when i sell it at $300 an hour, everyone accepts it

    its a funny world we live in ... ill just go back to work

    All I was pointing out was the misuse of divs vs using semantic HTML. People mean the same thing - CSS based layouts - but I was objecting to the implication that spreading divs everywhere is a good idea, rather than using the correct elements in their place. It makes no difference to anything else which elements are used, but it uses the semantics of the language correctly. You argued against this, but then also said you weren't suggesting putting divs everywhere, so what is your suggestion?

    On the problem itself, I believe there's a solution. I read it in an article on MSDN from five or six years ago, but I've never applied it. The example they gave worked: table cells progressively loaded. If I recall correctly, try surrounding the TRs with <tbody>, but I think there was more to it than that.

    EDIT: Don't think this was the exact article, but: http://web.archive.org/web/200312131...le/msftnew.htm
