Sorry! Arg. Is there any easy way round ? I tried to add a (make paragraph (literal "\no-break-space;")), but it just adds to the row height - that is, each cell seems to get an empty paragraph, and the relative vertical positionning is unchanged. This may be because the 2 other cells in the row both contain images that the text is valigned on cell bottom - in contrast, a single-line cell with multi-line siblings get valigned on top. This discrepancy may be a bug, possibly related to the non-handling of vertical alignment - the text baseline is kept aligned with the bottom of the images. How difficult would this be to implement vertical positionning the right way, so that all those problems are solved ? I did not look at JadeTeX source, but I guess I could give it a try - unless you feel it requires too much knowledge of the whole thing...
