Tables should just print properly without having to do something 
special.  However, the table in this problem isn't a normal data table.  
You are putting problem parts in table cells.  Robley Light had a 
similar problem and we resolved it be just wrapping the code for the 
<table> tags inside of <web></web> tags.  This way, the table just 
appears on the web but prints with no table formatting.  Robley, do you 
remember where this problem is?  Jay may find it helpful to look at it 
and print it out and see if he likes this workaround.
