I'm very lucky. When Dolores sorted out a new PC for me, she got me a widescreen monitor. It's dead handy. Especially for my super-wide tables.

So apologies for publishing tables with columns you can't see. Unfortunately, some tables are just so packed with juicy numbers, that they don't fit on a normal screen.

I used to publish the tables as jpeg images. But I've swapped over to html tables instead. For a couple of reasons. For one thing, it makes the contents searchable. More importantly, it makes life easy for me when I'm putting my books together.

I've found a solution. An ugly, makeshift one, but one that works. I'll just have the tables in both formats. Click on the small image and you'll be able to see the table in all its full, mouth-watering detail.

I've already changed the last two large-tabled posts. The ones about Whitbread Porter and Stout. Take a look. Or failing that, the images below.
