This class allows you to create highly dyanamic tables easily and quickly.  It has
full support for anything you can throw at it.  It supporst CSS, and all other tags
you may want, even ones you make up.  It can handle truly dynamic tables.  You can
create a single 'layout structure' and it can handle dynamic col and row spans, changing
in the number of columns, and even supports creating tables inside tables.

This class has been used in production use to speed up development of intensive 
reporting features.  The class was found to actually be faster to develop with, as
well as faster than using and parsing traditional HTML templates.  This is because
the class works completely in memory, storing all the table data in several comprehensive
arrays, not compiling to HTML until you want it to.  This allows for dynamic on the
fly editing of any attribute of any element. You can easily add and subtract rows, columns
at any time.  Easily add content by the row by simply passing an array.

Indeed, I have not met a table this class doesn't make easier to use than real HTML.
