would it still work?
Yes. html pages do not have to go thru the internet to be able to be opened like an internet page. As long as whoever gets the file has an internet browser, the browser will be used to open it.

Just my 2 cents but formatting tables and such around this output would best be done in Perl or Python where it would only add a few lines more. In BASH this could almost double your script size I think since to do it *right* you'll want to write some functions to calculate lengths and draw lines and such. For instance in Perl to print a "line" you can just do
print "-" x 5

and that will output

. In BASH you'd have to do
for ((i=0;i<5;i++)); do echo -n '-'; done

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Good luck though. I empathize with the BASH addiction.
