Hi,

It is quite interesting to see that CALS (OASIS) tables have finally
been "licked".

My version is at
https://github.com/wendellpiez/JATSPreviewStylesheets. I basically had
the same idea as Eliot from the sound of it.

In my implementation, the table normalization logic is encapsulated in
a module that can be called for either HTML or XSL-FO results. Also,
useful functionality is coded as functions, so the same code can be
integrated into Schematron, thus permitting some XPath-based
validation of the table (prior to processing) in a supporting
environment.

It is also interesting to note that even to this day, there are one or
two features of "old" CALS/OASIS tables that are not dependably
handled in rendering technologies, such as alignment of cell contents
on characters, or rotation ...

Cheers, Wendell
