Hello Christian,

The proper way to center a table is to wrap it into a table-and-caption
with text-align="center". See "6.7.2 fo:table-and-caption
The spec says "The children of the areas generated by the
fo:table-and-caption are one or two areas; one for the table caption and
one for the table itself. These are positioned relative to each other as
specified by the caption-side trait. They are placed relative to the
content-rectangle of the generated area as specified by the text-align

Currently, XEP does not support this special meaning of @text-align, but
the next generation of RenderX products will support it.
