Better.  Preformatted tags <pre> appear to force browsers to render a  
minimum cell width to fit the preformatted text, so the "Debian Lenny  
PPC" row comment is setting the Comment column width.

Firefox at least seems to be breaking URL lines in the Package column  
at directory separators '/', but there are still long filenames that  
are again forcing a minimum cell width (also looks like the Debian  
Lenny PPC row).  But Safari is not breaking those URLs, bleh.

PS. small correction - in the top Windows row, the Note should end  
with </p>, not <p>.
