Message-ID: <42551683.17214.637006@localhost>
using version 8.7.3 on Windows 98
the included file shows two problems
 with current version:
1] go! button wraps -- styled to auto but does not 
   wrap if styled to 40px... still  issues with auto
2] the table in lifestyles folds its contents when
    there is enough space to AUTO calculate
   widths to minimize folding. 

it seems that some work on format is still 
needed although much better than previous 
versions.  other work may have higher priority
but i want this to be noted for whenever there
 is a chance...  ta from john in niagara canada

<h1>JR's Education Page</h1>
<p class="drop">I am dedicated to a lifelong educational experience and
have found that the Internet provides ready access to many forms of
knowledge and tools to access that knowledge. This site acts as a pointer
to some of the better pages and collections of resources available.
It also records my journey through the information network. Even with all
its dead ends and construction slowdowns, some of the landmarks that are
passed are memorable and worthwhile.</p>

<h2 id="life">LifeStyle</h2>
<p>What kind of a community do you live in? Is it a sprawling suburban
wilderness suffering from unplanned growth? What kind of community would
you like to live in? Do the following principles appeal to you?</p>
<div class="c"><table summary="list of principles"><tr><td><ul>
<li>preserved open space</li>
