Uh, yeah, there's a nifty new browser out called "NCSA Mosaic" which
supports tables....

Tables since
Platform version #... Notes
Windows 2.0.0a8 Currently our best implementation,
had them before Netscape, (interesting
to compare the two), etc.
Mac 2.0.0b1 A VERY close second to Windows.
Actually had tables in 2.0.0 alphas,
but I can never keep them all straight,
and believe me, we had a lot more
internal alpha releases than you all
ever saw...
X 2.4 But they didn't support arbitrary
markup in the table cells, and
unfortunately, they still don't.
