When a table appears withing a <UL> </UL> block,
when the table closes, the indenting level is lost,
causing all text that follows to be flush left, or off screen.

I know the HTML abilities are limited, but this is simple stuff,
and used to work in 1.1.6.

BTW, the screenshots are using the test/help program, eg:

    ./help /var/tmp/foo2.html load the attached HTML example.

Well, that isn't valid HTML (only LI is allowed directly under UL...), but I'll see what I can do.  At the very least the left margin shouldn't go negative... :)

> Well, that isn't valid HTML..

    Yes, don't get me started ;)

    According to HTML purists, <BLOCKQUOTE>, <DL>, <UL> are all
    hacks and wrong to achieve indenting.

    After all these years there's still no "proper" way to
    indent text in pure HTML.. so we all just fall back to
    doing whatever works.

    IMHO the HTML spec is fatally flawed for omitting such an
    obvious practical need, which is why browsers seem to support
    this universally.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

I added a simple margin class to track the changes to the margins better; it seems to have cleared up all of the problems in your example and the FLTK documentation.
