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

It now handles vertical spans, which requires analyzing all the
previous cells when processing each cell.  It's ugly.  Check it out.

;; DSSSL stylesheet for HTML 4.0 (97-09-17 draft) tables
;; Created for the W3C XML WG by Christopher R. Maden of O'Reilly and
;;    Associates (crism@xxxxxxxxxxx).
;; The cellpadding attribute needs to be handled by cell contents.

;; assumes only LTR content and single tbodys
;; assumes that specifications are in pixels, and can be converted to
;;    pts 1-to-1
;; doesn't get valign from <col> or <colgroup>
