RE: [xep-support] Rookie question: full page table

Hi Tomas,

I've had to do some pretty funky things with tables to get cover pages
with a desired layout, so maybe one of these techniques would work for

margin of

"figures" below).

For this requirement, do your tables have borders that need to look like
they extend to the end of the page? If not, you could place a
break-after="page" attribute on the fo:table.

If you need the table borders (which I think you indicate in your
figures), here's an idea (just shooting from the hip, but maybe :-)

What if you detect the last row of the table being displayed (the "real"
table), and suppress the bottom border. Then, you create a second,
absolutely positioned table at the bottom of each page with one row (and
one cell as in your example figures) with no content. This border-only
table would have a bottom border and both side borders visible, but not
the top border. You could make this table 10 inches high, so it will
definitely extend up into the "real" table. Maybe this would give you
the visible structure you're looking for.

Hope this helps!
