I sent this note already to www-style, so this is for anyone who didn't
get it on the other mailing list.

Since only Scott commented on my suggestion for resolving framing
conflicts in tables the first time, and I've revised it significantly
since then (Thanks for your comments, Scott!), I have posted it at

My suggested rule change would increase the power of the table facility,
encourage the use of style within tables, and facilitate good authorship
practices such as the use of meaningful classes to emphasize table
elements. I think that this is a significant improvement to the CSS1
specification, and I would like to discuss it at WWW4.
