Bryan, I'm not sure I understand wht you mean by a table oriented for
vertical reading. First, do you refer to a layout table, where the
developer is trying to control positioning on the page, or a data
table? They really are two different things, though W3C would like to
have people stop using tables for layout (but they do it themselves
<g>) and use CSS2 for text positioning. But browsers currently don't
support that, donchaknow.

I use either a two or three column/cell layout table. This approach
seems to render one atop the other in a text browser such as Amaya
provides, and that works for me as what is in each cell/column is
independent of what is in the next, or previous, one. Within the
cell/column, however, you do read top down, which I would describe as
reading vertically. But that can't be what you mean, can it?
