neither of these are regular contributors to lynx-dev,
but i'll accept their comments as representing some users.
one says half a loaf is better than no bread (the present situation),
both agree Lynx currently renders links in tables in a usable manner.
neither appears interested in reading normal data tables
of the kind you find in hard-copy reports, newspapers, journals etc,
the reason <table> was added to HTML in the first place
& something Lynx currently does a very poor job of handling.

this is lynx-dev, not w3m-dev ... (look of amazement)
