Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] pgwide support with Docbook 5

Chris is right that HTML tables do not support the pgwide attribute in DocBook 5. Neither XXE 4.8 nor Oxygen 12.1 will let me add that attribute on HTML tables, but allows it on CALS tables.

However, when transforming to HTML, you can emulate the pgwide effect on HTML tables with the attribute width="100%". 

When transforming a test article to PDF with FOP using XXE's PDF generation facility, both CALS and HTML tables came out the width of the page body, both with and without pgwide="1" and width="100%", respectively.

XXE reported it as invalid.

I think we are using HTML tables, not CALS tables. <http://www.docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/html.informaltable.html> has no pgwide.

Maybe HTML tables were a tactical mistake on our part!
