Please implement horizontal scrolling.  I believe that would be one step
in an evolution to provide better table support in Lynx.

Heck, I admit it -- I use GUI browsers when looking at and 
a few of the online TV information sites I use (if they don't provide a list
view)...  precisely because of the bad way they look in Lynx.  (Well, when I'm
at home and only have Lynx, I use it.. but you get the idea)

But at least _for me_, the biggest problem is the wrapping, since tables are
obviously wider than 80 columns most of the time.   I think some would
look much better if I could horizontally scroll the info.

The few times I've tried to look at Lynx source, I get lost in twisty source
code, all alike...
