RE: HTML output for @table and @multitable

VERSION: makeinfo 5.2 (built from source on Fedora 20 x86_64)

I sincerely apologize for monopolizing your time.
Only one more to report after this one, I promise (but it's a big one).


Without the application of CSS style, the HTML output for both @table and @multitable could be considered unacceptable for two reasons:

1) the formatting of the HTML output is rather embarrassing, and

2) it doesn't much resemble the 'info' output, neither in line spacing nor in column spacing

Both of these issues can be corrected with CSS style alone, but you might consider what could be done inside the texi-to-HTML converter.

For the CSS, see our definitions of the HTML <table> and <dl> elements in 'infodoc-styles.css'.
