Actually, I think it's rendering the table rather widely, so that it looks
like moving between one link and the "next" (i.e., the next row) jumps you
further down the document.  In fact it's scrolling your screen to the right
and then to the left.  Use the '<' and '>' keys to see this (but make sure
the cursor is in the table first, or else you'll just see a blank pad).

As pointed out by someone else, the colors are configurable in the 'O' menu
(in english).

Agreed on the "correctness" front.  Really, the tables and frames seem to be
its main features (for those who don't care about disk space).
