a few suggestions:
providing stricter code to the browser would almost certainly reduce parsing time...
using lower-case tags, quoted attribs, a doctype, and not using tables would also speed things up.
if you must use tables, give each one a height and width, to cut down on redraws.
without a pre-known height+width, the entire page is reflowed to fill a single cell...
in fact, in general, the more things you pre-size, the faster the page can render.
you could also move the style attribs to css classes, where they can be pre-parsed once, instead of once for each element...
