Yes, Netscape versions 2.0+ support nested tables.  To nest a table, simply add a new <table...> tag in an open cell.  See the following example:
<table>
<tr><td>
   <table><tr><td>nested table cell</td></tr></table>
</td></tr>
</table>
I have used this method at numerous sites and have not run into a limit as to the number of nestings that is possible.  However, the max that I've used is only 5-6.

Thanks.  I am familiar with the syntax.  I have a nested table that looks good in IE4, but doesn't show up in netscape.  My code validator returned no errors.
Just as a side note, I called netscape for the answer, and they tried to bill me for technical support.  I yelled at their supervisor who eventually gave me the answer.
oh well, it's probably something small.

jello, if you post your code on the site I'll take a look at it and see if I can come up with any ideas...
