Some documents at docs.parrot.org are missing data. #667

This page has a line at the bottom directing the user to a "table" of information:

The page doesn't have the table, but the pod documentation does. The script that's extracting that info might not be working correctly.

Originally http://trac.parrot.org/parrot/ticket/1054

This problem occurs in several files:

docs/book/pir/ch04_variables.pod:300:=begin table String Escapes
docs/book/pir/ch04_variables.pod:594:=begin table Format characters
docs/book/pir/ch04_variables.pod:708:=begin table Format flags
docs/book/pir/ch04_variables.pod:762:=begin table Size flags
docs/book/pir/ch06_subroutines.pod:1165:=begin table Function signature letters
docs/book/pir/ch07_objects.pod:421:=begin table Class Introspection

None of the 6 tables is generated in the html.

The problem probably originates in an inability on the part of whatever generates docs.parrot.org to understand the custom POD formatting used in these files for tables. Example:

=begin table Function signature letters
=cell Character
=cell Register
=cell C<Z>
=cell C<P>
=cell the argument for C<Y>
=end table
