   well. i have to admit that's pretty amusing: you do everything the  
   way it asks and it produces an intermediate result it won't process.  
   let me take a look at it.

And it's not trivial -- if you put in just the first row of cells,
xml2rfc breaks and fills the lines correctly.  I tried setting the
widths of the columns so they all added to 85% (85% of 82 is 69, which
should fit), but that trick didn't work.

    My young brother asked me what happens after we die. I told him we
    get buried under a bunch of dirt and worms eat our bodies. I guess I
    should have told him the truth - that most of us go to hell and burn
    eternally, but I didn't want to upset him.

for the third column add this

	width='30em'

that should let you proceed. i'm still looking at the bug.
