Could you describe in more detail what you are looking for?

If I understand you right, you have some code for tables but it would
require a "function to render something with a given width" that would
be supplied by the Lynx code.  I assume with "render into" you mean 
everything including line breaking logic.  Unfortunately, there is no such
function currently in the Lynx code.  Splitting text into lines is done
in the simplest case (no relevant markup that affects line breaking) in
GridText.c or, in more complex cases, in HTML.c in cooperation with
GridText.c functions; but all this uses a global variable LYcols for the
available width (which is the full screen width), there are no provisions
for "rendering" into smaller columns of text.
