Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-4021) table:use-first-row-styles not available on <table:table-template>?

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=72432#comment-72432 ] 

Regina Henschel commented on OFFICE-4021:

Using e.g. the attribute 'using-first-column' of the concrete table is indeed no full ersatz for the deprecated template attribute 'first-row-start-column="column"', because the attribute "using-first-column" does not only affect the top-left cell A1, but the cells A2, A3, ... too.
But on the other hand, these template attributes are not suitable to generate all wanted table structures and should be replaced with something better.

LibreOffice uses a more flexible table:table-template in extended mode, see [commit|https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/plugins/gitiles/core/+/309bc35559cb823415139044272b10feccdb6ae7%5E!]. It uses elements, so that different styles are possible, and it allows to distinguish even and odd for first or last column/row too. There exists yet no proposal here in JIRA. 

My proposal is, to not remove the template attributes in ODF 1.3 but keep them deprecate. So for those table structures, which cannot be described using only the table attributes, the template attributes can still be used. But later when in ODF 1.4 the new template elements are available, the template attributes will be removed.

To solve the conflict between mandatory and deprecate, we should make the template attributes optional.

> The table:first-row-end-column attribute specifies the whether the cell

> Francis observes:
> *****
> This attribute was deprecated in ODF 1.2, but according to the schema
> this attribute is required on <table:table-template>. The text says that
> attributes table:use-first-row-styles and table:use-last-column-styles
> are to be used instead, but these attributes aren't available on
> <table:table-template>, only on <table:table>.
> *****
> There being no use for table:use-first-row-styles and table:use-last-column-styles outside of table:table, is the failure to put them on <table:table-template> a nice to have but not a real issue?
