RE: [xep-support] RE: Calculate mid-point of column using inherited-property-value

Yes, I have tried text-align="{$string}". - The XEP User Guide
specifies that aligning on a character is not supported. We've actually
tried a number of different options, but in each case, the midpoint of
the table-cell has to be specified to get the output I want:
| My Column |
| 123.123 |
| 1.1234 |
| 12345.1 |
| 12.12 |

The bottom line is that you must specify the center of the cell, that
is, where the dot belongs.

Leader: The only way to get the dot centered is to adjust the
leader-length and leader-pattern-width.
<fo:block font-size="9pt"
>0<fo:leader leader-pattern="use-content"

List-block: Once again, the center must be specified, in this case by
<fo:block font-size="9pt">
  <fo:list-block provisional-distance-between-starts=".4in"
      <fo:list-item-label end-indent="label-end()">
      <fo:list-item-body start-indent="body-start()">
        <fo:block text-align="left">.3</fo:block>

Inline-container: This should work according to the spec, but, alas,
RenderX does not do it right. Ditto about specifying the center, though.
<fo:block font-size="9pt">

You would not need to specify the center (.4in) if
"inherited-property-value(column-width)" was valid.
