I was thinking of using php to deliver different code to IE... sending
display: table-cell in the css for non-IE browsers, or wrapping the
appropriate markup inside table markup for IE. Everything else will get
nice, semantic table-free markup. I realise that browser sniffing is not
100% reliable, but all that that means is that in a few very rare exceptions
a compliant browser will be handed table markup instead of semantic
markup -- the page will still look the same, it will still work, and it will

Re: display: table-cell and IE
Maybe. What would you use it for? Maybe there's a different approach.
Sometimes display: inline-block does what you want.
If display: table-cell is essentially, maybe your data structure actually
_is_ a table. I've seen that. People "get rid of tables", the rebuild the
tables in CSS, without realizing they had _data_ tables, not layout tables.
