one of the worst-supported features in WML, at least in browsers
available at the time of writing. The reason for this is that
displaying tables properly (as laid down in the WAP specifications)
often requires a lot of screen space, which is at a premium on
devices such as cell phones. For example, at least one browser

even line breaks.
WML tables include a number of rows, each containing a number of
cells. The cells may themselves contain multiple lines of text, due
<br/> tags, but these are all
