Thanks. But well, I've just realized that I neglected a certain aspect of table layout in my preparations which turns out not to be so simple. Some might have seen my notes on the Wiki about breaking cells . This was done while I was still thinking in terms of the old approach. Now with the Knuth element lists the problem presents itself in a different look. We've got to build a combined Knuth element list for a table row from element lists of the individual cells. Turns out to be relatively straight-forward if you only deal with fixed width boxes and normal penalties. As soon as stretch/shrink flows into the equation things look like they can get real messy. I'm currently preparing two different approaches for discussion (will appear on ). I wonder how Luca handled lists which is a similar problem.
Please excuse my ignorance, but why do you need to take cells that shrink/stretch into the equation? Are you trying to allow for auto table layout?? IMHO for a first release auto table layout is a bridge too far.
