Thank you very much for your assistance. I tried what you suggested as a groff command and now have a preview that shows the table properly. The pdf looks fine in a viewer. What a relief!

If you remove groffer from the equation, and produce PDF, does that look
correct when you then open the PDF in a viewer?

     groff -P-l -t | ps2pdf - bob.pdf

gxditview here, I've an old version, doesn't take options or resources
to define the paper size AFAICS, so it can't be told it's landscape.
Its man page says

     The paperlength and paperwidth commands in the DESC file specify the
     length and width in machine units of the virtual page displayed by

The files here, e.g. font/devX100-12/DESC, don't have those commands.
Perhaps adding them with landscape dimensions will make it work.  You
could copy, e.g. devX100-12 to devX100-12-l.

Cheers, Ralph.
