[xep-support] Still problem with centering a table horizontally on a page

I've seen reference to this problem throughout the forum, and tried the
suggested solution below:
<table width="100%">
   <table-column column-width="proportional-column-width(1)"/>
   <table-column column-width="proportional-column-width(1)"/>
      <table-cell column-number="2">
         <table table-layout="fixed"
        content of table that's to be centered

Using this technique, my desired table is centered on the page, but it
seems to take up only one third of the page, but only when I use '100%'
as the value for 'inline-progression-dimension'. If I use '6in' as the
value, the table stretches out. Having 100% is handy in that I don't
need to do any calculation based on whether the page is portrait or
landscape, or if the table is being rendered across the full page, or
within a column.

Can anyone explain how I might get this to work without performing a
calculation to transform '100%' into a fixed length?

Thanks in advance,
