Canonically decomposable characters should have a distinct cell color: light
Finally the font-size 50% is not well rendered; I would clearly prefer using
a explicit 7 or 8 pt font size...
It also seems that the crash in Opera comes from excessive constraints on
the table: wells have a specified width of 1% instead of 0.387% (except
horizontal headers with 0.928%)
The crash of X servers comes from too many distinct glyphs to cache; no
clear solution on this except trying to upgrade the X server.
I do think that such a giant poster should be a large GIF instead, or a
collection of GIFs, one or two per row (easier to update if you want to
maintain it with new allocations).

It's long to load and render, but yes it works, at least on WinXP. I doubt
that Win9x/ME will be able to load it.
This is at least a good test for X servers...
