Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: pagebreaks (Re: Which conversion method should I use?)

/ Baráth Gábor <dincsi@elender.hu> was heard to say:
| about tables: if i know well, colwidth attribute has measure only like
| inch or cm and not %. IMHO 2cm has no semantic meaning. The width of
| column depends on font and paper size or window width in html.

That's why CALS allows relative units.

| If you want presentation independent structure,
| i think it shound be fixed. Maybe better be using some attrib to set
| the column width. (something like that:
| colfit="fit-to-text|avaible-space")

If you set pagewide=1, you're asking for the table to be coerced to
the page width. If you don't, you're giving the renderer a free hand
to build a table that may be narrower than the available page width.
(Note that in a multi-column environment, there's no equivalent
colwide=1; if you set pagewide=1, you're implicitly asking for the
table to span all the columns.)

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com>      | Doubt is to certainty as neurosis
http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | is to psychosis. The neurotic is
Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | in doubt and has fears about
                                   | persons and things; the psychotic
                                   | has convictions and makes claims
                                   | about them. In short, the neurotic
                                   | has problems, the psychotic has
                                   | solutions.--Thomas Szasz
