I posted this question on the XSLFO group as well, I
would like to center a table using XSLFO and
<fo-table-and-caption text-align="center"> does not
work with XEP. Does anybody have any idea on how to do
this other than start-indent and end-indent? Any
suggetion/help is appreciated.
Eliot Kimber really does know what he is talking about; you should
listen to him like I do. I've learned a lot from him.
I, too, found on my own to use text-align="center" in Antenna House
and start-indent=, end-indent= in XEP.
If you want text-align="center" in XEP, then you could ask the vendor
for it in order to indicate there is growing interest in having it supported.
If you want to use text-align="center", that indicates that you do
not know the width of the table, because if you did know the width of
the table, then the indent is easily calculated as half of the
difference between the width and the parent area. In my production
work I have rarely (if ever) used automatically-calculated table
widths because the automatically-calculated column widths are
calculated by vendor-specific algorithms. In production work I
typically know precisely what my table widths are, so I can center
them using either tool.
I hope this helps.
