That looks a lot better.

I found also an obscure problem with table. I had to dabble a bit

Okay, I understand. Can I do something about this? I now use \testpage, but
that is not quite satisfactory.

Lastly a question about a long click-able email address. I would

Much better. Only one slight problem. The dot to finish the sentence is
placed on the next line.
