It's simple to make tables in sgml-tools (linuxdoc).  One just uses a
<verb> environment with fixed width font (either use <tt> or
<tscreen>).  The result is a table in plain text just like one would
type on an old typewriter.  It isn't fancy but it serves the purpose.
It also displays OK in html, etc. (but html doesn't classify it as a
table although it actually is).
