The web page generated by query-pr-summary.cgi is very large. Today, my visit
to http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr-summary.cgi resulted in a 1702446-byte
html file. This is a bit too large for the people with slow internet connection.

I think the size can be reduced by doing the following:
1. Move the individual 'style="background-color: #ffffff"' code for each <td>
to a central style sheet, and define it for td. Only override the cells that
need different background color. This could save about 700000 bytes (almost
2. Move the individual 'style="text-decoration: none;"' for the <a> tags to a
central style sheet, defining for "a" tag directly. This could save about
3. If we strip the spaces at the beginning of the lines, we can reduce the size
with a further 90000 bytes.
Totally the above measures can make the result less than half of the size now.
