Overview, my opinions only:

I liked it more the way it was on the last draft.  There are now
several implementations of tables out there (NCSA, Netscape, ...)
and this draft proposes things which I haven't seen used or

The draft is too wordy, and doesn't read like a specification.
Comments like the one suggesting that user agents should
create a scrolling table should be removed.


The border styles stuff is unnecessary.  I liked BORDER better in
the last draft -- on or off.

The alignment character stuff is unnecessary.  I've seen no
implementations of this.

The THEAD, TBODY, and TFOOT stuff is unnecessary.
