For some reason this message didn't seem to make it to the list,
so I'm resending it.

Are you sure about that?  From what I've been able to tell in comparing
the non-patched version with the patched version, and from what I
understand of what the TRST code is supposed to be doing, I'm getting
the full benefit of the TRST code with the patch, and I don't really
want to turn that feature off.

I'm not so sure I really want full table support, anyway, after having
seen what links and w3m do with pages that abuse it for layout, because
you often end up with text filling 1/4 to 1/2 the width of the screen,
and the other 1/2 to 3/4 of the screen going to waste because there's
nothing there once you scroll down a page or two, but when tables are
used correctly, for their intended purpose, it's often impossible to
make sense out of what you're seeing without at least TRST, and even
then, sometimes you can't make sense out of it because, presumably,
the table isn't "simple" enough for TRST to do its thing.

Also, if you look at the block of code that I disabled, you will
notice that there is a section in there which acts differently if
SH_EX is defined (isn't that for Japanese?), and the SH_EX behavior
is different than the non-SH_EX behavior.  It's been awhile since I
actually followed it through to see where the no_table_center variable
is set, but I believe defining SH_EX will do basically what my patched
version is doing.  I'm not sure why that section is #ifdef'ed for
SH_EX, when it doesn't seem to have anything to do with what language
you're using.
