I spent some hours scratching my head trying to get tables out with
vertical lines, until Jambunathan suggested that I try not to put space
between the '<' and '>'
The patch adds a few words to the org.texi file to that effect.

WARNING: Ive never given a patch before! Nor used texi

I applied the patch, thanks!

To improve future patches:

- take care of not adding whitespaces (just run M-x
  delete-trailing-whitespace RET when you're done editing.)

- add a ChangeLog (go to your edits, type `C-x 4 a' to create a
  ChangeLog message for your edit, and add this as the commit 
  message.)

More detailed information on the website.

Thanks!
