Since two replies I sent to Simon's posts seemed to end up in
oblivion, I'll post it as a new message.
Concerns the following issue:
Uncertain status. The linked bug is resolved, but the description does
not match the description of the bug:
Omitting fo:table-column or having fo:table-column without a
and attempting to create columns implicitly from the first
table row is not implemented, yet (<a href="http://
Just had another look, and it currently only works correctly in case
there is no column-spanning going on in any of the cells in the first
<fo:table-cell width="2in" number-columns-spanned="2">
In this case, two implicit columns are created, but the cell's width
is not yet distributed over the two columns.
I'll add a testcase demonstrating what still goes wrong, but the
issue probably needs to put in a slightly different wording,
indicating that it works apart from the above reservation.
