tabulate data without <table>

Given this list of data:

a1 a2 a3
b1 b2 b3

How could I tabulate them without using a table? I knew I could use a
<ul> to list one column list, but how about multiple columns?

Regardless of all the uses for which a table may not be appropriate, THIS is
what a table IS for. Why don't you want to use a table?

Well, why don't you read the CSS 2 specification then? It surely
describes how tabular rendering could be achieved. Then test it on some
browsers and you will observe that some browsers have implemented it,
some haven't, and it's nothing you could rely on in practical WWW
authoring.
