    Hello Werner,

    Table width="100%" means that content-rectangle of the table will be
    as wide as content-rectangle of the parent reference-area. Borders are
    drawn outside of the content rectangle and thus total width of the
    table with borders became larger then available space. That is that
    you have for the nested tables - their layout is over-constrained and
    they get clipped on the right. If you remove width specification from
    the tables you will achieve desired behavior.

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov
