Netscape won't display the table until it sees the </table> tag. If they're
nested, you won't see anything until the outer </table> tag is read.
Technically, load time isn't being affected (at least in terms of download
speed), but the display may appear bogged down because your browser won't be
able to show the smaller bits as they arrive.
