Attached is a very small update to the docs about how to refer to tables in 
other files.  Probably there's something wrong with the formatting, but git 
send-email didn't work, and I hope the Changelog entry gets through.

Why the Nu HTML Checker line got included I don't know ... some whitespace 
thing, I guess.

Bill

Hi  William,

Thanks for sending in this patch. Documentation improvements are always great to
see. I’ve just applied your patch with minor tweaks to the commit message, and
the “Nu HTML” bit removed as d700c03 🙂.
