If that table is exported into pdf as shown in my attached testing.pdf
you can see that its overflowed the page. And that's what I'm trying to

But that table is almost a screen width in my emacs and it will probably
get mangled by the mailserver along the way, but if the pdf attached
gets through you can see on there what I mean.
