Really? :) I didn't know you were such an awk wizard. :)
Take a closer took at Tom Zerucha's stuff.  (The rest either is
gone, or doesn't work very well according to my brief testing.)

Well if that's the case, you could probably easily write something
that preprocesses

 <TR><TD>Blah<br>more blah</TD><TD>Other blah<br>more other blah</TD></TR>


 <TR><TD>Blah             </TD><TD>Other blah                   </TD></TR>
 <TR><TD>        more blah</TD><TD>              more other blah</TD></TR>

(spaces left only to show correspondence better).  Generalize as necessary;
start having the <br>reaks generated by some awk logic (or take it from Tom
Zerucha's scripts), taking into accout WIDTHs and everything...  and leave
the minor rest to TRST:

         Blah      Other blah
         more blah more other blah

Also try his proxy in <>.
You should be able to run it as a regular user.  (You may have to
adjust some paths, otherwise it should be very simple to compile.)
You really ought to see it if you haven't.  (For your ocaa example,
I made some minor adjustments in the awk to replace "&#9;" with " ".
The proxy socket handling isn't too robust, it may hang sometimes;
but for not-too-long documents it seems to generally work.)

Well, if anyone sends him newer pointers or corrections, I assume he
will update the page.
