Indeed not. You could number your columns 100, 200, 300...
IIRC, they don't even have to be defined in ascending order, and
neither do the table-cells.
So, if you'd like, you could define a three column table:
<fo:table-column column-number="10" .../>
<fo:table-column column-number="5" .../>
<fo:table-column column-number="1" .../>
It just occurred to me that I wouldn't really know the 'expected'
result in this case... :-)
I don't believe --could be wrong-- that FOP currently makes any
attempt to re-order the columns, so column-number 10 will be rendered
as the first column?
