The occurence of such a problem is relatively rare I would imagine.
Rendering anything formatted to a character cell terminal is
inherently limited, which is why I like lynx: it eliminates all the
dumb formatting crap that people put on their websites, and even
collapses multiple columns into a single stream of pages. Yay!

See also reStructuredText for rendering plain text input to HTML and
other formats (includes tables), sil vous plait.
