The problem is that Lynx does not handle block-level elements
inside a table.  My feeling is that the only fix for the original
directory-listing problem is to code a special case which makes Lynx
regard hr-within-a-table as not a block-level element (something like
\hrulefill in TeX, which is a horizontal element while \hrule is
ordinarily a vertical element).
