An initial essay will be available at
<URL:> after
midnight tonight (0400 GMT).

It has some limitations:

;; DSSSL stylesheet for HTML 4.0 (97-09-17 draft) tables
;; created for the W3C XML WG by Christopher R. Maden
;;   (crism@xxxxxxxxxxx)
;; assumes only LTR content and single tbodys
;; assumes that specifications are in pixels, and can be converted to
;;    pts 1-to-1
;; doesn't set column-number properly in the case of vertical spans
;; doesn't handle cellpadding
;; doesn't get align and valign from <col> or <colgroup>
;; incorrectly gets width from <table> if not set on <col>

Thanks to Henry Thompson for (* number 1pt) - I completely spaced on

Updates will be made available as the stylesheet is improved.
