Try the "Web Page Backward Compatibility Viewer" at

You enter a URL and pick what HTML features you want to disable
(images, tables, frames, center, Java, JavaScript, style sheets
or marquee).  It will then display the page without those

The W3C also have a tool for viewing pages w/o tables:
http://www.w3.org/WAI/Resources/Tablin/online (a form)
