[rfc-i] support for tables (from RFC 5892)

This is also a good example of "Better support for tables". While XML2RFC supports tables, the ASCII output is hard to read.

Should authors be allowed or discouraged from styling tables? (Separating lines, alignment, etc.)?

That's really all we're talking about here. Can we agree that we're in

violent agreement and end this thread?



As one instance of such examples, consider the six lines at the bottom

of page 7 of RFC 5892:



00DF; PVALID     # LATIN SMALL LETTER SHARP S

03C2; PVALID     # GREEK SMALL LETTER FINAL SIGMA

06FD; PVALID     # ARABIC SIGN SINDHI AMPERSAND

06FE; PVALID     # ARABIC SIGN SINDHI POSTPOSITION MEN

0F0B; PVALID     # TIBETAN MARK INTERSYLLABIC TSHEG

3007; PVALID     # IDEOGRAPHIC NUMBER ZERO



It would be friendlier for those lines to be something like this:



00DF; PVALID     # ß LATIN SMALL LETTER SHARP S

03C2; PVALID     # ς GREEK SMALL LETTER FINAL SIGMA

06FD; PVALID     # ۽ ARABIC SIGN SINDHI AMPERSAND

06FE; PVALID     # ۾ ARABIC SIGN SINDHI POSTPOSITION MEN

0F0B; PVALID     # ་ TIBETAN MARK INTERSYLLABIC TSHEG

3007; PVALID     # 〇 IDEOGRAPHIC NUMBER ZERO
