There is a fix for 2.0.x "tbl" if you bug ISC enough.  Worst case, you can
get the 1.0.6 "tbl", which didn't show the bug.  This "tbl" problem
must be one of ISC's biggest black eyes, and yet its still like
pulling teeth to get the fix.

You can also get JetRoff from us if you care to print to the
HP LaserJet Series II/IIP or the DeskJet Plus.  This is your
cheapest, fastest troff printing solution.
