I think there was broad agreement here to work toward a level 2.1
having tables as its main enhancement. So, I believe we should use
"Accept: text/html; level=2.1" to detect table capability.

(Why 2.5? HTML 3.0 is a reasonably big chunk to bite off -- even
Dave hasn't fully implemented it in his own browser -- so I forsee
the need for a couple more intermediate levels. Can we start arguing
about what those should be?)
