This works when I try it.  Does your XML file declare the xl namespace?

I don't understand what you mean by "breakup".

Most tables are assigned table-layout="fixed", but there are a few layout 
tables for certain elements generated by the stylesheet that don't have a 
table-layout property.  That is a deficiency of the stylesheet, but FOP 
still processes them as "fixed" after complaining about them.

FOP still has some bugs like that.  Turning off keep-together on tables 
seems to help.

That's correct.
