That's simply the same misunderstanding that's been iterated
over the years.

1) granular data is stored in the backend

2) granular data is displayed in the frontend

The only reason for 2) is that no one (including me,
Richard, or Luke) has written a better display as of today.

That is, by definition, wrong. There never is "only one
[whatever] way". GNUmed, by itself, has never claimed to
know that way, as opposed to others.

I'd be glad if someone wrote that. No problem it would get
included in GNUmed.

If displaying lab results in a granular, tabular way is
wrong per se I wonder why you do it as well.

That's very helpful.

Since I'm not skilled at HTML I would need people to write
that code.
