I agree that would be nice, but wouldn't it require that lynx first have
better table handling?  If you take my example and duplicate that cell
four times in two rows and two columns, which is more representative of
the way you'll fine it in the wild, how is lynx to handle it?  Currently,
lynx would render all four cells, one below the other, centered line by
line.  With my patch, they will also be rendered one below the other,
but left justified, which I think is the best that lynx can do at the
moment without extensive reworking.

Also, could you explain what you mean by "it makes the handling of cells
inconsistent"?  Are you referring to with or without my patch?
