Yes, something can be done, and I am working on it.  Basically, these 
tables all rely on fixed text (using the pre tag).  I have now in the 
process of making the text flow naturally, where this makes sense.
But, we need to keep in mind that we are not responsible for how 
individual applications render a page.  For example, when printing from 
my browser I only have problems with two of the tables you mention.
