Hi all:

How do you calculate the proportional col width for a table if there is
no column width declared, and divide the columns proportionally?

Suppose I have three columns and the column width only for the first
column as 2in, how do you write a style sheet to proportinally
distribute the column width between the other two columns in the table?

p-c-w(1) and p-c-w(1) .. the processor will determine the table
width, deduct the specified widths, then proportion the remaining
columns by their specified proportions.

I hope this helps.

Hi:

style a cals table in XSLFO and should have been more
clear in my question.

My xml has:

<colspec colnum="1" colwidth="2.5in"/>
<colspec colnum="2" colwidth="2*"/>
<colspec colnum="3" colwidth="3*"/>

This is what I meant by proportional colwidth. How do
I handle this in the style sheet?

Yes, that question is a lot clearer.

column-width="2.5in"
column-width="proportional-column-width(2)"
column-width="proportional-column-width(3)"

I hope this helps.
