  I suspected as much. Lynx, for all its virtues (it is STILL my
  favourite browser) is limited in - in this context - how it can render
  a table. On occasion, to get columsn to line up properly, a much wider
  screen than expected is needed. (alt. a smaller font, like the one I
  used in my example)

  Hm. Yes. I'm afraid I can't quite agree with them. Lynx is still under
  development, and it does actually support quite a bit of HTML 4; up
  until a few years ago it supported *more* so than Mozilla and Opera;
  IE has still not caught on to things like LINK-based navigation.

  But yes, certainly, Lynx *do* have limitations in its table support.
  No surprise, really.
