I suppose a very rough rule is whether one can imagine reading the "table" in either dimension? I agree, its horribly hard to come up with a definition of when a table is real table.
but this is easier:
> Sebastian and John's code is fine, but the code referred to by Stuart I would refer to as "contortionist" - table cells are transformed into <div>s, but these are then rendered with table css display rules: why then not use a table in the first place?
because you can swap out the CSS and get a different rendering.
