Yeah. There is a tradeoff there, when I start putting real data into it-
horizontal structure names mean wide, irregular width, columns, and a much
wider table. Vertical structure names make for regular width columns, and
a much thinner table. But you're right, it's harder to read.

Sorry. The data is not necessarily even *correct*- it's just a test file
I'm running through my program. After the programm is more or less
finished, we start filling in the data. I was just wondering if the HTML
I was producing worked.

Version 2.0 is going to have comments. And classes- so we're not trying
to compare linked lists with hash tables. And probably other bells and

I like the idea of table. Used properly, they allow the programmer to
"these are the operations I'm most concerned with- what data structures
are best to use?"
I'll post the code here when it's in viewable form.
