Nope, that's right, lynx's rendering of tables *is* piss-poor. But so
what? You could preformat all that in <pre> tags. At least I can do
it. All I noticed is that the marginalization gets ignored, because
<screen> tags transform almost directly into <pre> tags. Maybe the
HTML that your parser generates is too complex. It is a function
of the stylesheet, so maybe it is doable by lynx with a simplified
stylesheet, if you think it could handle it.
