Not just any tags; it's catching the "</" in particular.  The parser
being used doesn't understand <![CDATA[...]]>, so doesn't avoid this

In addition to the options Tonico suggested, there's one more option:
change the line containing the </table> to:

         if (gecko) document.write('<' + '/table></td></tr>');

This avoids the specific behavior you're seeing, and would also work
without the CDATA marked section.

No need to do that.
