It would take some work. Basically, you need to write Javascript code to handle CSS properties of table elements. (jQuery is very helpful.)
If your data is like a table, a table element and its children is always better then divs.

So just use the CSS rule that prevents text wrapping.
There's an example here: CSS white-space Property

That's right, but then, ultimately, total page width may or may not be enough to fit all. Most typically, it's better to have some wrapping. It could be selective.

Interesting, but I'm not sure div pro's can outweight table cons...
