Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] footnote - nested tables
possible but it would not be simple. The stylesheets were not
designed to handle a table nested in a para in a table entry.
Normally CALS tables are nested with an entrytbl replacing
entry, not a table element nested inside an entry element. In
DocBook 5, your file will not validate as it would violate the
Schematron rule that prevents putting informaltable inside
entry. It should be invalid in DocBook 4, but there is no way
to express such an exclusion with DTD syntax.
footnote machinery is already complicated by having to keep
separate the table footnotes from the page footnotes. So you
would need to customize several templates that number and
place footnote markers, as well as places where footnote
paragraphs are rendered, to take into account nested table
footnotes. Those templates are in the footnotes.xsl and
table.xsl stylesheet modules.
