    <I suspect so. Text browser.>

    Can a text browser show anything other than text? If not, then what is the
    point of saying the table doesnt look nice.

    You still wish to use a private convention for quoting, don't you?
    Actually, your From field is a useful bogosity alert, so please don't
    stop forging it before you have a clue.

    Yes.

    Who said anything about a table not looking nice? The _page_ appearance
    was demonstrated.

    Regarding a table, you haven't understood what an HTML table is if you
    are obsessed with the idea that a table is inherently visual. It is a
    data structure, which can be rendered in visual, auditory, or tactile
    media, or processed programmatically as a structure.
