Can you alter the table (with "rowspan") so that the cell
with the directory comes AFTER the cell with the body in it?

I'm visualizing a very SHORT cell in C1R1 (empty cell, or small
image for decor) with the body text in C2R1 having the ROWSPAN
set so that it will overlap cell C1R2. (ROWSPAM=2 ?)
From the user's view, they will see directory beside the body.
From a robot's view, which is straight through the code, they will
see the cells in R1 first ... which is where your body text is
