Actually, it probably isn't working but only looks like it is working 
because you do not have any text that wraps a table cell.  I would think 
the indentation you witness is happening in the table cells, so the cell 
width is correspondingly reduced by the indent value.  If your test has 
short cell content, it would appear to work, but you would not be pleased 
with the cell wrapping.

I know of no other XSL-FO techniques other than what I've described in my 
earlier notes, so I think you are out of luck unless you use a processor 
that supports these aspects of the Recommendation.

I would certainly welcome anyone else's ideas about how it could be done, 
in case I've missed something.
