Option 3: If you can ignore crap browsers -- I know, I know -- you
can use `display: table-row`, `display: table-cell`, etc. -- for *much*
better CSS-based control in this situation than floats.

Otherwise, apply Squeamishness-B-Gone liberally.

If the origin of the data is a DB row the quantity is irrelevant -- 1 row,
100 rows, lebenty ziptillion rows -- it's tabular data.

Use a table. Be happy. :-)
