FYI the table layout code I have can cope with width problems already. All it 
needs is input for each column width appropiate line breaks inserted to stuff 
it into an appropiate width, which it calculates automatically. Given the 
rendering engine the rest is well covered by the code. Incidently it does use 
two passes through the table contents, but surely this should not be a huge
