Luke I understand and appreciated you’re mindset and perspective because of
your long very helpful clarifying email to me on Tuesday evening. However,
it was a one line change to the css file, not an embellishment. It would
waste a lot more time if the table produced was illegible or difficult to
read. I think you are overinterpreting here Luke. I understand where you
are coming from but in this case I strongly feel that this is a
misattribution because this cost maybe one minute but will save hours of
time wasted scrutinizing a table that is poorly formatted and thus messes
with the brain’s analytical and information intake hotpath.

Can you state here one more time as clearly as possible the exact task that
you think Jacob should be working on as his highest priority? Because to me
the communication despite your best efforts is still muddled.
