goto ,
which has been tidied up with my awk program;
look at Tables 3-1 to 3-5 , starting at page 27 (ie enter  27p ).

yes, that may be the problem: if it is, i would respectfully suggest
that TRST should try to format the numbers by column,
even if the column headings have to be left alone.
users will have to sort out the headings anyway,
but having the numbers formatted more appropriately will help with that.

 most  is not available on our system.
