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.
