Subject AW: AW: table cell duplication
Date Tue, 03 Feb 2009 11:19:25 GMT
Hi Jeremias,

Yes, I include a picture of my table (created with iText, except for the red stuff).  The
left colum contains numbers (Block A), photos (Block B), drawings (Block C) and finally another
number (Block D). The right column contains headlines, text, tables, various stuff. As you
can see on the second page, last table, Block A aligns with Block E, Block D is on the bottom
line of the table, not necessarily aligned to anything in Block E.

The text "PE universeel fittingen" is in the header area and can be ignored.

Maybe my table structure is not that smart, but it seemed the easiest way to keep block D
on the bottom. More or less... If you know a way to elongate the table columns down to the
table baseline regardless of empty rows, that would be most welcome, too.

Betreff: Re: AW: table cell duplication

Do you have a real-world example of what you're trying to build? I mean, your earlier picture
suggests that most of the EEE content belongs to the CCC section. What is DDD? A sum at the
end? I don't get how this fits together on a logical level. Maybe you could generate the DDD
in a similar way as I suggested for the repeating CCC: via a block-container (from the table-footer
or from the EEE cell). Anyway, this seems way beyond what XSL-FO provides. An extension would
be very specific to your use case here I suspect.

And no, the table marker would not be invoked in the picture you provided if it is defined
by the CCC cell.
