I don't mean to be one of those people who suggests X when you asked
for Y, but I'm assuming that you're trying to achieve a visual effect
by nesting tables in this way. Have you thought about ditching the
tables (or at least the inner one) and using well-structured HTML &
CSS instead?

If you have considered it, fair enough. However, I think it's one of
those "Doctor, it hurts when I do this / Well, don't do that" type

Could you show the whole page that you're authoring, so we can get a
better idea of what you're doing?
