I expect someday people will also check the stat via their iphone, but
I can only be shot once:-)  In any case, abusing the table structure
for this purpose is bad for other reasons.  Now that we are fixing it,
we should do it right rather than a bandaid tweak.

My patch doesn't use tables in the first place.  It sets pairs of
dt/dd for named counters and lets the browser layout properly with
customized styles.

Since the mail server doesn't seem to accept attachments, I've
temporarily copied the patch at http://www.jinmei.org/bind9stat.diff
in case you're interested in it.

It should have been ascii sequence (but just mime-encoded) when it
arrived at your server.  I suspect some entity then converted it to
non-ascii sequence in the wire.  I've never seen the non-recoverable
error I encountered this time even with such a half-broken header.
Anyway, I'm not intending to argue about this point with you.  I'll
avoid using the encoded ascii sequence when I ever need to write to
you again.
