Consideration of Table View for OTel Attribute Display

A customer has suggested shifting from the current JSON view to a table view for displaying attributes in OTel, citing issues with key visibility in small browser windows. While the JSON format currently handles long resource attributes more effectively by showing complete keys, the customer prefers a tabular layout. This change would require revising the existing tabular display to ensure all keys are fully visible, potentially involving multiple teams for approval and implementation. Although this is not deemed an urgent request and might negatively impact a significant number of users, it's worth discussing possible solutions that accommodate full key visibility without substantial side effects.
