Ubuntu's official online documentation: table(s) broken

Bug Description

The supported architectures table of the install guide is broken in numerous versions, e.g.


The table formatting is broken. The Sun Sparc line has for some reason (well, likely just a missing markup tag) been integrated into the PowerPC line. While this won't confuse the tech-savvy users of these architectures it's still not fine.

Same issue appears in pages regarding versions 10.04, 9.10, 9.40 and all supported architectures, e.g. https://help.ubuntu.com/$VERSION/installation-guide/$ARCH/hardware-supported.html
