Subject Re: [GSoC] Auto-table layout questions
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2006 07:29:55 GMT
Right, but strictly speaking the value "auto" is illegal for
column-width. FOP currently defaults to "proportional-column-width(1)"
if no value is specified.

Another thing we should be careful about is the distinction between the
value set for table-layout and the effective algorithm to be used. If
you specify table-layout="fixed" but without an ipd, the rules for
automatic table layout are activated.
