Well, /s?he/ had the right idea. One wonders why HP can't just produce simpler HTML, or even provide a port for text output... ok, may be that's a little silly, but all of this to get a few numbers.

<grumble>Isn't the real problem here the
obsession that some designer at HP has with
producing beautiful output, good HTML practice
be damned? Why do Dreamweaver jockies have to
make my life hard!!! AHHHHH!</grumble>
