in thread CSV or HTML?

Tux: Not the canonical reference but in http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html3/tables.html there is this:

Hint: You can achieve a similar effect to the above by using decimal alignment and using the DP attribute to set the alignment character to a convenient character, for example:
<table> <tr align=decimal dp=":"> <td> name: <input name="name" size=18><br> card number: <input name="cardnum" size=18><br> expires: <input name="expires-month" size=2> / <input name="expires-year" size=2><br> telephone:<input name="phone" size=18><br> </table>
Each line in the table is then indented so that all the colons are positioned under one another.

And yes, Amaya is a reference browser, but that doesn't change it's incompleteness (acknowledged with respect to CSS, for example, at http://www.w3.org/Amaya/Amaya.html at the heading "Support for CSS").

BTW, I have used it and while it sure is painful to do so, I'm not sure I'd characterize myself as a masochist. Excuse me now, while I go back to reading some nearly unintelligible nodes. :-)
