Dear diary, on Wed, Nov 19, 2003 at 09:10:04PM CET, I got a letter,
where Glenn Harris <gharris-list at eklo.com> told me, that...

Unfortunately, there is no good way to do this yet. Try to press '*' to
remove links to images, that might help. But unfortunately, some tables
are just too wide to fit there, and ELinks would have to make
"asymetric" columns in the tables (with each cell of different width).
I'm not sure if it would be possible to modify the current tables
layouting algorithm to do that, probably noone besides Mikulas really
understands it anyway ;-).

To get something done, a committee should consist of no more than three
persons, two of them absent.
