well, the obvious difference is that the former gives tables in text,
the latter only as HTML, which has to be further (badly) processed by Lynx.
as i said in another message, if you want HTML for any reason,
use t2tgrnest, then enclose the result in <pre> ... </pre> .

i simply can't understand (big smiles etc)
why you don't use your apparently available time & considerable skills
to convert the logic of t2tgrnest into C code for inclusion in Lynx,
subject to whatever interface seems best with Lynx's existing code;
i've suggested a possible approach resembling frames on the outside.
don't forget, TZ' programs work only for UNIX users.

you also commented on the OCAA tables elsewhere:
they are the best example offered so far of real-life tables,
contained in a professional economic report which was originally hard-copy.
by all means point me to equally real-life alternatives,
so that i can test TZ' impressive creation some more
(no, not football results or film-fan contest entries).

and yes it was you who reminded us all re TZ' work ...
(big smile superimposed on look of puzzled exasperation).
