    I understand that tables should be reserved for tabular data, and in my situation it is. Consider the following:

    <table>
        <tr>
           <td><img src="names.jpg"></td>
           <td><img src="ages.jpg"></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
           <td>Sven Groot</td>
           <td>25</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
           <td>Jonathan Sampson</td>
           <td>23</td>
        </tr>
    </table>

    isn't treated the same as

    <table>
        <tr>
           <td>
              <img src="names.jpg">
           </td>
           <td>
              <img src="ages.jpg">
           </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
           <td>
              Sven Groot
           </td>
           <td>
              25
           </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
           <td>
              Jonathan Sampson
           </td>
           <td>
              23
           </td>
        </tr>
    </table>


    This is tabular data, but still demonstrates my point.
