Errr, what about lynx, links or w3m? Last I checked they didn't support it,
either. So you'd have to make it look good with and without CSS, which is
twice the work and would probably make an impact on file sizes. And,
verifying CSS stuff looks bearable in four[1] non-compliant browsers is
harder than doing the same for tables in Lynx.

[1] plus older versions of currently CSS-compliant browsers...
