Do you see it in modern pages though? general consensus for years has been to avoid using tables for handling the presentation structure.

shr.el renders tables.

So, maybe another week or two for the Inspired One...  who will it be?

The algorithm is rather slow for deeply nested tables, though.  It
basically does a search of the entire "table space" to find the best
layout, and that's not the most efficient way to do it.  If you have
tables nested 20 deep (which you see in real life), it's not ideal.
