uploader html

hi gang!

I've been checking out the uploader today and noticed that the html could be cleaned up a bit.

Right now there are 3 tables being used:

1) A 1 row, 3 cols table for the values "file name, size, space". It has the caption "File Queue"
2) A dynamic data table with no caption, 3 cols. It holds info about uploaded files
3) A 1 row, 2 cols table for the footer. The first col has the # files/total size data, and the second has the browse file input.

I'd like to suggest an alternative:

1 data table, with both the header information and the data
the footer styled with css

I'm guessing one reason it was done this way was to make the data scrollable but have a fixed header. We can still achieve this with css, and also keep the semantic connection of column headers to data.

I've created a jira for this:  FLUID-3837<http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-3837>
