  Description     : Converts HTML to Text with tables in tact

HTML::FormatText::WithLinks::AndTables was inspired by
HTML::FormatText::WithLinks which has proven to be a useful `lynx -dump`
work-alike. However one frustration was that no other HTML converters I came
across had the ability to deal affectively with HTML <TABLE>s. This module
can in a rudimentary sense do so. The aim was to provide facility to take a
simple HTML based email template, and to also convert it to text with the
<TABLE> structure in tact for inclusion as "multipart/alternative" content.
Further, it will preserve both the formatting specified by the <TD> tag's
"align" attribute, and will also preserve multiline text inside of a <TD>
element provided it is broken using <BR/> tags.
