It's not a simple matter of changing just one config attribute, but it's
still pretty trivial. See

You can actally just uncomment the template_map definition in your
/etc/htdig/htdig.conf, and then edit the /var/lib/htdig/common/long.html
result template. I have to wonder how you got your results to go into
table form without doing just that, unless you merely put the table
definitions in the header.html and footer.html and let all the results
go into a single cell of the table.
