I am facing the infamous error:
"A table-cell is spanning more rows than available in its parent element."
When trying to convert DocBook to PDF using FOP.
It is a big document with many tables, and looking for the culprit is tedious.

That would make it an illegal CALS table - according to the OASIS CALS specs.

Has anyone faced this issue, and found a way to detect the issue?
A "simple" XPath would do I guess?

I've created some schematron and done a blog post on CALS validity:
