[xep-support] table column widths correct in FOP but not in XEP

A recent post on the DITA Users list provided a solution to a table column width issue I had been struggling with for some time. Unfortunately, the solution appears to work only with FOP. It does not work with XEP. In short, the solution is to edit the tableSpecNonProportional parameter to have a value of "true" in tables.xsl and/or tables_1.0.xsl. After making this change and generating a PDF using FOP, the table colums are the width I specified in colspec (1.25 in and 3 in). When generating with XEP, the column widths are 2.375" in and 4.125 in.

The FO is as follows:

<fo:table-column column-number="1" column-width="1.25in"/>
<fo:table-column column-number="2" column-width="3in"/>

Does XEP just not respect the value of column-width when rendering tables?
