tables done properly are NOT simple! I've wasted at least an hour and a half just getting the alignment and styling of the columns / rows to match my design. (obviously using as little css as possible!)

Hooray for <colgroup> <col>, :first-of-type, :last-of-type, :nth-child(x)…

…without you all it would have been a mess of classes

also there is a bug in chromium -- if you have a transparent border (no matter where is is -- <thead> <tr> <th> <tbody> <td> ecc..) it renders *below* the table cells on the first column 😠

always 🙄

*BUT* only if you are using the [colspan] attribute!!!

-- that problematic transparent <table> border *can* be rendered as a box-shadow 👍
