          The Flash Player has a very limited number of HTML tags it can handle - table is not one of them. Since Flex is just a way to build Flash Player content you are limited by what the Flash Player can do.

          We don't supply a full browser/HTML rendering engine in the Flash Player because it would make the Flash Player a multi-megabyte download (eg, 11-12 MBytes); right now the Player has a small footprint which enables it to be downloaded by virtually everyone.

          The Adobe AIR player (see labs.adobe.com) does have a full HTML component and can run Flex programs. The caveat is that the apps are not run in the browser, but on the local machine. The end-user has to download the AIR player in order to use it.
