You need to use nested <table> containers:
Obviously, this is for a right column, but you can as well reverse the order of the wrapper table cells... as well as arrange complex nested ... However, for just layout, you should use
or other containers semanticaly adapted, and style them with css as table family elements ( through the property 'display' ).
