Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: need help with Passivetex errors (part 1 of 2))

/ Sebastian Rahtz <sebastian.rahtz@computing-services.oxford.ac.uk> was heard to say:
| I am very aware that PassiveTeX has serious problems rendering tables.
| It does do a plausible job if you supply column widths, of course,
| but I don't think the Docbook stuff does this. In the TEI stylesheets
| I work out column widths when I make FO.

If you have extensions enabled and you specify the
nominal.table.width, then you'll get absolute column widths.

Sebastian, if you found a way to deal with relative column widths
(width="3*+2pc") without an extension function, I'd be delighted to
steal the code :-)
