This was the work (but not the fault) of jTab, which is used on Music Stack Exchange to render guitar chord notation. We were telling jTab to handle each and every <pre><code> block we could find; especially every indented block like the ones you created. jTab dutifully converted them to a graphical representation, but of course your tables don't ...

I'm glad the HTML workarounds are available, but it definitely gets away from the source being human-readable.
