I'm trying to use vertically spanned cells in a table with Jade
1.2 and JadeTex (1998.9.26).  The HTML output looks as I expect
it to look, but the TeX output messes up wherever there is
vertical spanning (using <entry morerows=N>).  The SGML source is
included below.  Should this work?

There are two problems:

* For all rows whose first element should be occupied by a span
  from a previous row, the cell contents are shifted to the left
  as if the span were not there.

* There is a heavy vertical rule between the first two cells of
  the first row and a lighter vertical rule between the first
  two cells of the second row.  Since there is a span covering
  the first two cells of both the first two rows, there should
  be no vertical rules at all there.
