--------------------------------

I don't  believe table layout "auto" is  implemented in FOP since it seems to only support  table-layout="fixed".
We can probably hack a work around  by modifying our xsl - we can discover all the things a fixed-layout table needs before creating the FO elements

James Strachan commented on CAMEL-49:
-------------------------------------

I guess longer term, we may wish to customize the widths of tables on specific pages. e.g. in the pom we could maybe do something like (am using a properties file notation here, but we could use XML if you prefer)

{code}
# this page has 2 tables
1.uri = cheese.html
1.table.1.widths = 10% 10% 80%
1.table.2.widths = 30% 80%

2.url = foo.html
3.url = bar.html
{code}

As a hacky workaround for now - how about we come up with some good defaults. Basically in all the tables in the current document, the first 1 or 2 columns are kinda small; the last column is always the big one as its the description. So how about our default table sizing is something along the lines of the last column is double the width?
