Try calstable:check-normalized(), as seen in this example: https://github.com/transpect/xslt-util/blob/master/calstable/xsl/example.xsl It is based on Andrew Welchbs table normalization.
We came across a CALS table with a "missing" cell in the first row, like this:
<tgroup cols="2"> <tbody> <row> <entry colname="col1" morerows="1"><p>Text</p></entry> <!-- MISSING second column cell --> </row> <row> <!-- skipped first cell because of morerows --> <entry colname="col2"><p>Text</p></entry> </row> </tbody> </tgroup>
This table is technically valid, but creates problems when processed further.
Are you aware of a tool or method to check that the table data is correct regarding any available colspan or rowspan definitions? I fear there is no way to have that checked using just e.g. XPath.
My next step would be to look at Andrew Welch's table normalizer, which I have used in a number of projects. It is currently based on the assumption that the first row of a table is complete (after expanding any colspan definitions).
Any hints are very welcome,
