Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Any table model advanced than CALS

I have worked a bit on such a model some time ago, but this work is
not finished and mostly prototypical.  Especially, not all CALS
features have been incorated yet.  Currently a simple DSSSL stylesheet
is used to generate a CALS table for further formatting.


A quick cut'n'paste from the DTD header:

| An XML DTD for a semantic table model, trying to keep close
| to the CALS model.
| Currently features:
| - nested <row>s
| - no <tfoot> (useless)
| Will feature:
| - <rowlevelspec>s to hold rowlevel's optional title and to
| allow <row rowlevel="name">
| - nested <column>s
| - anonymous (title-less rows and cols)
| - no <entry morerows="..."> (use anonymous rows instead)
| - no <thead> (too much layout oriented, use column titles instead)
| - no <spanspec> (too much layout oriented, use nested (and maybe anonymous)
| columns instead)
| - annotations on row/column titles

If anyone is interested to lend a hand, I may be motivated to work on
this again :)
