The background:
I believe we can use DSSSL and Jade as an S-converter.  That is transform
our SGML
source documents to another character based markup ( XYWrite).  The
<table> elements are next on my list for format conversion.  The result
of the table group, body, row and entry elements is raw text currently and I
have in mind to make some adjustments.  Original effort at these table
handlers in my SGML2ODSP.DSL involved (literal ?[ blah ]?) to instrument
notation to indicate I had the right tags.  That done I would like to
address just
how to format the individual cells within rows in a more attractive layout.

I thought the use of the $process-table-body$, (from a search of <table>
like elements in the collection of *.dsl within the docbook\print),  would
lead me on an adventure in the right direction.  Finding myself staring at a
dead end I figured it would be a good time get past my denial, to humble
myself, and seek some advice..
