[xep-support] Re: Rotate table spanning multiple pages

No sooner had I written about the challenge of
recreating nested formatting objects, that the
principle itself was asked about on the XSL mail list.


I took this as a sign and I put the effort into writing a generic splitter.


You should be able to hack the PSMI code if you
find you really cannot live with a flow-top-level table.

When I find the time I will update the PSMI code
myself, I just can't do it now ... but at least I
now know how I'm going to approach it.

I hope this helps.
