[xep-support] Aligning numbers in tables

Hi all,

We have some tables that only contain numbers. The number must be vertically
centered. However, in our font, Franklin Gothic, all the numbers start on
the baseline and have the same height as the caps. This gives the optical
effect that vertically centered numbers have more whitespace below them than

I must confess that I am utterly confused by all the alignment properties in
the XSL-FO specification. Can someone point out to me how I can center the
numbers based on the cap height of the font and not based on overall the
font height?
