This was what I was propopsing, in addition to a method for assigning widths 
to the columns, based on the content, if the overall table is too wide. I 
would like an option to omit the lines myslf and just go by the alignment.

I was further proposing the clean soplution was to handle tables on the 
otuside of the rest of the rendering engine. I also mentioned that subtables 
are obviously a good thing and easy to support within that framework.

In passing i was aware that it would make "real" fram support possible too, 
asusming we decided that was a good thing. IT is amazing how the lynx dev 
mailing list dsitbrutor can find me and inform me than it can find no A on Mx 
records for (nslookup finds the MX record locally, at 
sourceforge and at southampton uiniversity).
