Your element interests me
I would like to subscribe to your periodical.
Boffins have found fresh evidence for the existence of the new, super-heavy element ununpentium, known to gamers as the element found in meteorites in games like Call of Duty and Tomb Raider. Periodic table up to date in May 2013 The element with atomic number 115 has no official name yet, but its temporary moniker is …
While I agree with what you're saying, a table/div based approach would take considerably more time than an <img> tag and could easily cause havok with rendering between different browsers, especially on mobile devices when you consider El'Reg's fixed width layout.
Since they have gone with a jpg, a click-through larger image should have been included though.
So what will this eventually be? RussAmericonium perhaps?
With valuable research dollars at a premium, seems to me that unless someone can predict with at least some degree of certainty that Islands of Stability actually do exist in these never-never regions then it's a bit of a waste of time.
Elements that don't exist long enough to even determine their chemical properties aren't really much practical use of (except to those with excessively large research budgets).

Their use is as stepping stones to the next elements and on towards the next Island of Stability.
I'm currently researching the Element Unobtainum but am having difficulty getting research funds.
Unobtainum when used in AMD Processors would when used as a quad gate manufacturing process would result in CPU's that can run at 15Ghz+ at room temp and would output (not consume ) about 70w
Just enough for a raspberry pi to be self powered
Element 119 is the item popular in UFOlogy, and only one with a very large nucleus, all these elements produced in labs are very light variations, and you need to remember this when talking about the decay and usability of a heavy element created in a lab.
There are a number of scientists who believe in the possibility of more stable elements, but they would have to be forged in some very specific environments, usefulness of them? who knows
