Dav, thanks for the quick reply.
I was afraid it'd be something like that, but got thrown by it rendering in all of the other browsers. I was hoping against hope that when pulling an element into layout it also changed that element's type. I see now (via firebug) that I was incorrect in that hope.
I'm attempting to put a facelift on a quite-involved site (It's a Moodle in case anybody is interested) that makes extensive use of tables for layout. I will play with using the YUI copy the content of the target <td>s to <div>s and delete the <table>.
