    The way to centre a table in XSL-FO 1.0 is to use the <table-and-caption>

         <table-and-caption text-align="center">
           <table border="solid" width="10cm">

    I see by trying it that this is not yet supported by XEP so if you know the
    width of the table you can use start-indent= and end-indent= on the table.

    I hope this helps.
