As far as I understand the spec, table-column elements with a column-width
property are mandatory for tables with fixed table layout.
>From the spec: 7.26.9.:
The "column-width" property must be specified for every column, unless
the automatic table layout is used.
To me, this means not only that column-width is mandatory in fixed-layout
table-column elements exist, but also that a table-column needs to exist
each column. Since they don't talk about a derived trait, but
of a column-width property that also isn't inherited, I can only conclude
"must be specified for every column" means:
1. In fixed-layout, there MUST be a table-column element for each column.
2. In fixed-layout, the column-width property must be set in all
