i'm not sure...

i've done a little reading and i can't find anything solid...but is it possible to create a table but using only css/div/span tags?

what i'm trying to do...is output a list of information from a database...x number of times...

This | That | And then some
This2 | That2 | And then some2

but like tables...i wanted the faux cells (spans?) to size according to %...40 | 30 | 30 |.

why do i have to do this without tables? i don't, but i'm very curious if anybody has figured out a way to do it yet reliably for 5.x browsers and up...
