Why not create a behavior (*.htc) for use with IE browsers, which can dynamically create Structured Graphic Contols. Apply this behavior to an element using CSS, getting the behavior's code to pull the content out and re-use it. Browsers other than IE will ignore this.
Then, for all other browsers (which happen to be standards complient [for the majority, anyways]), you can use the :before and :after pseudo elements. IE will ignore these.
Bingo - cross-platform and no buggering about with lots of HTML tables!

Do you have any examples of this in action? Be interested to see it. Cheers...

this can be done in css ... suing images, some guru coding and divs.
I was on opera's webdesign forum, asking about this exact issue. Some of the most intelligent css experts I've ever met came up with a template using css and images to give 4 rounded corners. No applets needed, tables etc. Since in XHTML tables are not meant for layout..

You've got two examples. I just looked at the links in this post and put two and two together. Mozilla came up with four, IE came up with 3 and a bit.
