Chatzilla uses tables, so I thought it was worth mentioning.  As far as 
semantics, this is an excellent example of tabular data.  Each row will have 
very specific pieces of information that can be broken down into specific 
columns meant to hold that data.

Styling is another matter entirely.  Unless you start some fancy un-styling 
with the td's, you are stuck in a very strict basic layout.  Using some 
other layout methods would certainly be more easily flexible in this

Uh. I'd like to give that a chance, since this is a fairly purposed
discussion so I presume that you're being serious?

The one thing that comes to mind as to why this approach wouldn't
really make much sense is the sorting aspect... though I guess sorting
by Nic/time would be ok... Even still, it seems no more semantic than
my DL approach.

Anyone else have opinions?
