    Can someone please tell me where I find the website that has the marvellous
    demonstration of a host of different table formatting options.

    Why? Tables aren't for formatting. CSS is for formatting.

    Because, perhaps, tables used for tabular functions don't have to look
    like sin? And "table formatting" is neutral between the methods
    employed.

    I know for a fact that some kiwis would be happy only with the CSS
    method for styling tables, others with HTML methods and, being kiwis,
    some others use specialist table-formatting-sheep to style them.

    Perhaps some site like

    <http://www.somacon.com/p141.php>

    is meant?

    Ah, my old mate from the penal settlement!!
    Thanks but not the page that I am looking for.
    It has dozens of tables with identical content, but different CSS styling,
    listed one above the other on the site.
    Keep looking........

    Yes, that is what I felt when I quickly found this one. I am sort of
    sure I know the one you mean and am almost certain to have it
    bookmarked. But, you know what, finding things in my bookmarks... well,
    you would not bother half the time, you might as well go to google the
    world... I will poke around when I have a chance... I hope someone comes
    up with the one we mean so it does not niggle at me all day...

    I think I know the site you are referring to, showing dozens of
    different zebra table styling ideas. Afraid I don't know the URL, though.
