Not only that, but it doesn't inherit the background image from its parent 
properly. For example,

<table background="myimage.gif">
<tr><td>Some text</td><td>More text</td></tr>
<tr colspan="2"><td>Even more text</td></tr>

You'll find that the background is repeated in each cell, not that the cells 
are transparent and the table area has a background. This is mightily
