Thank you for the explanation Alexander.
I have one more question though. If I remove the width specification the
width will in fact become "auto". What can guarantee then that the area
of the parent formatting object is filled up. "auto" means that all other
constraints are taken into account. Couldn't this also imply that the nested
table will be just wide enough to contain its contents? Isn't this left to
the particular implementation? XSL Formatter, for example, does not make the
nested table fill up the area, while XEP does.
