<columnspec> is presently only used in the LaTeX transform.  The width
units are a fraction of the total line-width.

For your doc, I'd tend to try to avoid tables.  In general, we use tables
as little as possible in the docs, and we use them only for truly tabular
data.  In this doc, I'd probably lean towards using a <dl> or something of
the sort instead of a table.

The other question is does this belong in the manual, or should it be
maintained on the website alone, as it has been in the past:

I don't have a strong opinion about that.  In either case, an update is
much needed.
