Any reason why the original markup can't lose the table?

It just seems like a hard way to do what should be a relatively easy job. Do you have a test page available for viewing?

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script language="javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.5.min.js"></script>
<script language="javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
