no, I think not
How difficult would this be to implement vertical positionning the
right way, so that all those problems are solved ? I did not look at
JadeTeX source, but I guess I could give it a try - unless you feel it
requires too much knowledge of the whole thing...
if i was rewriting jadetex from scratch (whicg I am not!), I'd throw
away TeX tables and build up cells from scratch. that may be the
only viable approach
I had a first look, and am wondering. There are 3 sets of
column-styles, and jade uses the oldest one. OTOH openjade refuses to
process Norm's stylesheets - and I it similarly barfs on my stylesheet
$ openjade -t tex -d /usr/lib/sgml/stylesheet/dsssl/docbook/nwalsh/print/docbook.dsl sample-tbl.docbook
openjade:/usr/lib/sgml/stylesheet/dsssl/docbook/nwalsh/print/dbtable.dsl:404:5:E: flow object not accepted by port; only table-column flow objects followed by table-row or table-cell flow objects allowd
$ openjade -v
openjade:I: "OpenJade" version "1.4devel"
openjade:I: "OpenSP" version "1.5pre5"
Is openjade usable at all ? Is it just 1.4devel that is not
stabilized enough, and 1.3 should be used ?
It is also much MUCH slower than jade at processing documents :(
