To get rid of interdependencies, I fear the most stable method would be extra rows and columns. At least I have seen this approach for print production.
The border method will be difficult, because I already see borders and I doubt if border appearances can be stacked on one another.
There are certainly easier designs with a similar amount of clarity. With a little bit of shading one could get rid of the black cell borders and then a general white cell border would work okay, I guess.
I have to design a table in XSL FO, and the client would like to have the overall layout like in the following image:
My question is about the gap between some of those cells (in this image between "sub-tables" A, B, C and D, and the cell "Type of activity".) While in the "sub-tables" the borders should be collapsed.
What is the best approach for this problem?
I thought to use a table with a gap between its cells and without borders collapsing, its cells being sub-tabels which have border-collapse="collapse". Do you think it is a good idea? Is there something easier? What is the easiest way to set the gap width between the sub-tables?
Thank you, best regards,
