|Thanks for the clarification. |
The Fl_Help_View only interpretes a subset of HTML. In this particular case, it gets confused by the "center" attribute right before the "table" tag.

The problem would occur if there was formatting inside a table. The next text block would be set to the formatting of the table member, not the table itself, or, even better, the parent block of the table.
This fix sets the x offset back to the left page border. While this fixes pretty much all pages in our documentation, this is obviously wrong for tables inside of tables. To fix this issue, we would have to introduce a full blown hierarchy of text blocks. This would blow the complexity of a simple help browser out of proportion.
