At StackOverflow, Larry specified that the requirement for nested tables stems from the table sorting code he is using, not from the need to style the table in novel ways with CSS.

I would recommend formatting the tables using W3C standard tags including thead, tbody, caption, colgroup and col. Then I would reevaluate the table-sorting code I am using. Consider something that sorts rows within the <tbody> tag when th elements in very last row within <thead> element are clicked.
