It's a nice idea but lynx doesn't seem to render these tables properly. IE,
Mozilla and Outlook render it "as intended".

Here's what lynx spits out:

C:\>lynx -stdin -dump < spam.html

   Al

   Co
   No
   l

   ns
    e
   Rx

   ult
   mba
   Pr

   at
   ra
   odu

   ion
   ssi
   ct

    a
   ng
   s

   t
    M


   n
   .


   o
   D.


   cos
    vi


   t
   s



   i



   ts

I've attached the table I'm testing with as a FYI, although I'm not sure if
the mailing list will accept it.
