I know that this will make a table output but it isn't going to do
all the fancy formatting that I need like

<b>author</b> ... <i>condition</i> ... <fontt align=right>price</font>

so my question perhaps needs to be rephrased as 'how do I get specific
html text formatting commands in the html output?'

back to perl maybe? not an issue but being able to do something from
within postgresql would save that extra step.
