DocBook table column width dilemma

Post by strummer » Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:51 pm

I finally figured out how to stop the PDF output from DocBook from using fixed column widths for tables, using the following XML code:

<tgroup cols="2" align="left">
<colspec colnum="1" colname="Option" colwidth="1*"/>
<colspec colnum="2" colname="Description" colwidth="4*"/>

But now I noticed that this code is screwing up tables in the HTML output. The columns now almost look fixed width there now.

Has anyone been able to solve the column width issue for DocBook PDFs while maintaining nice looking tables in the HTML output?

I really would appreciate help on this.

Thanks,

Steve.

Hi Steve,

I already gave you a suggestion here:

Can I remove this post as a duplicate and continue the discussion on the previous post?

In your reply, you instructed me to add it to the docbook users list.

Hi,

This is the Oxygen XML Editor forum.
I was referring to the open Docbook Apps Mailing list where you can join by adding your email address here:

http://www.oasis-open.org/mlmanage/

and then by checking the "docbook-apps" checkbox and clicking "Update Subscriptions".
