My simple fix didn't touch the <TR> case, but only affected the <TABLE>
case, which has suited me fine for several years, so I have no objection
to that.  The ^Q mod affects both, so I guess my statement earlier that
the difference between the behavior of my modified version of lynx and
the stock version is identical to the difference between the two behaviors
that ^Q toggles between if SH_EX is defined wasn't exactly accurate.

This works fine if you enclose the poem in "<CENTER>...</CENTER>", so it
doesn't need tables, and I think that's normally how that effect is done.
It would also work with <TD ALIGN="CENTER">.  I can't think of any case
where the align attribute makes sense in <TR>, and I *still* wonder if
it's ever used, so I don't care one way or the other what it does.
