    Yes, because these are inherited properties they are being inherited by
    your table cells. Add start-indent="0pt" and resets to all of your
    inherited properties to <table-body> and your cells will inherit that
    indent instead.

    You would have seen the effect had you turned on table borders for
    diagnostics (something I often do during development).

    I hope this helps!
