Where there's a will, there's a way.  The question is, would that 
really be a good idea?  I don't think it would be.  Once that kind of
code is integrated into Lynx, it would be hard to get it out again
when a better solution comes along.  True table implementation needs to be
done "right" the first time around, and I believe that the best course of
action at this point is to just investigate the possible methods of doing
it, with the understanding that Lynx needs to be rewritten with the new
libwww code before it can effectively implement any "good" table parsing
