A few sites I frequent have their ad slots inside tables, and as adblock only seems to collapse parent layers, there's heaps of empty space on the page that could be filled with content. Scrolling is getting a bit annoying by now.

Easiest way to do this safely would be to check whether all the content in a table cell is filtered, and if it is, remove the cell from the source. Also, if a table was filtered all the way so it doesn't have any cells, remove the table too.

http://irc-galleria.net/ for example has ads inside tables.

Tables cannot be blocked because they are not an external file. Adblock Plus can hide table elements.

Good luck with your suggestion. I regard this project as dead.
