Guidelines for nested data tables?

I'm working on an interface that will consist of a data table with
each row being expandable to show more details of that particular
record. The details would then be formatted in their own table.

This seems like a common need, but I haven't found too much that
addresses it specifically.

Is it fine to add a blank TR to the parent Table to insert the nested
table within? Are there any issues/guidelines in regards to nesting
data tables?
