Tables in text browsers...

   Why is it that none of the text browsers (Lynx and Charlotte come to 
mind) support Tables? I see no reason why they shouldn't. Text can be 
just as easily displayed in rows and columns on a monospaced 80x24 screen 
as it can on a Graphical browser using proportionally spaced text. The 
text browser could simply ignore attributes like size specifications in 
pixels. It could, however, use the percentage size specs.
   Why doesn't Lynx support tables?
