Is "nested-table logic" only supposed to work with, i.e., depend on,
"color-style", which in turn assumes "screen=ncurses", or is it that
it has only been tested with "color-style" and may work in other

Presently I configure lynx with "--with-screen=slang" and "--enable-
nested-tables", but I've always wondered if that is the right thing to
be doing since I don't set a configuration option for "color-style",
and always assumed it was off by default.

With "Lynx 2.8.6dev.18" (I'll do my best to try to upgrade to lynx2.8.6
pre.3 this weekend.), --with-screen=slang and --enable-nested-tables,
I get a status-line message that toggling is ON/OFF.

Assuming I can get lynx2.8.6pre.3 installed soon, what test should
we do to see if "run-time toggling of the feature works properly."

Also, can lynx-devers suggest some URLs of good examples of tables
where nested-table logic improves the presentation?  Thanks.
