I was in two minds about changing the layout of the columns in RoundingMode.
It can sometimes hard to discern the intent of the author. In addition, numbers
can be problematic because ideally you want the overall column of numbers to
"centered", but each individual number to be right-aligned within that centered area -- and that is not easily expressible. The best that we've achieved elsewhere is to use
"right-aligned, with some right padding". While that can be done, the local
style declarations start overwhelming the content ... and the whole trend of
HTML5 and CSS is to separate content and style.

In this case, there are several tables that would benefit from a specific style declaration, but it's not important enough IMO to add to the main javadoc stylesheet.
But, the javadoc team is working on enhancements to the use of stylesheets,
and maybe that will give a better way forward, eventually.

But I agree the left-aligned values look less than ideal. The question is, do you
want to add one of the following to all the appropriate cells:
    style="text-align:right; padding-right=Nem"  // for some value of N

Hi Jon,

Looks OK overall

Any thoughts on centering some of the column values such as in RoundingMode at some point?

DateTimeFormatter looks much nicer :-)

Please review the following changes to fix accessibility and HTML issues in the
java.math, java.text and java.time packages.

Mostly, it's "more of the same", setting scope=row|col on tables.

One bigger change is in DateTimeFormatter, to change a preformatted ASCII
table into a standard HTML table.
