I remember spending a rather unhappy afternoon killing off similar 
problems as we prepared to publish the original SOAP 1.2.  Endless 
iterations of fooling with the HTML, then trying Print Preview in both 
Firefox and IE, and eventually asking people to help me try other 
browsers.  I think I may have eventually cranked down the font sizes on 
some of those long URIs, but I don't remember what else I did.   Trying to 
redo this stuff can be very time consuming, so if someone like Yves had it 
worked out for the PER, I strongly recommend we try to go back to that, 
rather than redoing the debugging yet again.  It's a real nuissance in my 
experience.

        Subject:        Table layout in SOAP 1.2 Part 2 PER



Dear all,

I noticed that the printing problems linked to the large tables present 
in the SOAP 1.2 Part 2 specification where still remaining in the PER 
(see [1]). The issue is that as there are tables containing URIs in 
several columns, those tables are very large and do not fit on a page 
while printing.

Talking about this issue with Yves, he found that this issue had been 
solved in a previous edition of the PER (see [2]), but this modification 
seems to have been lost somewhere.

Could you change back the table layout to the one in [2] in the future 
editions of the specification?

Thank you,

Hervé.
