I haven't had the time to dig in to see how they did it, but the way that
Lullabot does their code blocks on their redesign is both cool and
functional.  For an example, check out
http://www.lullabot.com/articles/querying-slave-database-with-views and
mouseover the code snippet that is wider than the content column.

It's a bit of apples to oranges (table vs code tags), but depending on the
content within the table it might be a possible solution.
