Hi David;

The wrapping seems a bit fragile. Some of the lines are wrapped to the
left column and others line up with the headers. To reproduce, try at about 40 columns. It looks like two
different kinds of wrapping going on.

About aligning the headers I'm not sure how I feel yet.  I probably need
to use it a bit to give an informed opinion.  I agree it makes the
individual headers easier to pick out, but I have some kind of knee jerk
reaction to using up space that way. That might be my 1980s VT52
instincts kicking in uselessly though.
