Hi, in layoutmgr.table.ColumnSetup an error message is thrown if there are gaps between columns. There is also some code in the TableFObj tree to deal with column gaps. But AFAIU there’s nothing in the spec stating that fo:table-columns should be consecutive. And as table-columns are only placeholders for properties that may be used by children table-cells, I don’t see what is wrong with gaps.
Anyone against me changing this behaviour? Thanks, Vincent
