Part of the difficulty with Web layout is that there is no one right 
answer.  Widths depend on your default font size, on your screen size if 
you're browsing, or on your print scaling if you're printing.  Using my 
default settings, which do tend to be a bit larger than average, table 15 
is more than slightly too wide.  Only about the left-most 2/3 shows up. 
Again, my settings are larger than some peoples (Firefox, with 
font-size=16 points).

More to the point, I wonder whether printing has been tried, as that was 
part of the original problem.  In my browser, print preview shows lots of 
the tables badly clipped, and there is some residual clipping even the 
reformatted ones.

Dear XMLP WG,

Thank you for fixing the table layout problem.

I just noticed there is a small remaining problem for table 15 that is 
slightly too wide. But I don't know if it's worth the trouble fixing it.

Best regards,

Hervé.
