Oh, I see problems, but afaict they're required by the markup. Could
you provide an example of what you'd like to see? (although perhaps
some pictures would be helpful, this text markup in plaintext which is
rendered in a proportional font is a disaster.)

If you didn't have an &nbsp; after the commas, the browser would have
more freedom:

<td align="right">Recurse&nbsp;⊆&nbsp;∅,
<small>ε</small>&nbsp;∈&nbsp;<i>Fi</i><sub>(n)</sub>,&nbsp;<i>n</i>&nbsp;∈&nbsp;<i>N</i>,&nbsp;<i>n</i>&nbsp;=&nbsp;<i>head</i><sub>(<i>w</i>)</sub>&nbsp;}</td>
