Re: [xep-support] centered tables

Hi Werner,

Thank you for this tip. If I don't find another solution I will have to use this workaround.

But isn't there a better way to align a table? Maybe XEP is misbehaving on this issue? I'm sure the FO authors thought about this thing. Does anybody out there have a better solution than to use a table to align a table?

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Christian,

This is what I generate for it:

<fo:table table-layout="fixed">
   <fo:table-column column-width="proportional-column-width(1)"/>
   <fo:table-column/>
   <fo:table-column column-width="proportional-column-width(1)"/>
   <fo:table-body>
      <fo:table-row>
         <fo:table-cell>
            <fo:block/>
         </fo:table-cell>
         <fo:table-cell>
            <fo:block>
               <fo:table width="100%">
                  <fo:table-body>
                     <fo:table-row>
                        <fo:table-cell>
                           <fo:block>Cell</fo:block>
                        </fo:table-cell>
                     </fo:table-row>
                  </fo:table-body>
               </fo:table>
            </fo:block>
         </fo:table-cell>
         <fo:table-cell>
            <fo:block/>
         </fo:table-cell>
      </fo:table-row>
   </fo:table-body>
</fo:table>

Regards,

Werner.
