It's quite difficult to read wide tables, because you easily lose  
track of which row you are in. My suggestion would be to split the  
columns into conceptually coherent groups, and create one table for  
each group plus the index column you suggested you would repeat on  
each page. Several relatively narrow tables would be more readable  
that two/three wide tables, IMHO.
