I should take my own advice; you can find more info about column  
visibility here:

Quote: "If the 'visibility' of a column is set to 'collapse', none of  
the cells in the column are rendered, and cells that span into other  
columns are clipped. In addition, the width of the table is  
diminished by the width the column would have taken up."

My caveats about actual browser support still apply, though.
