I notice the CSS2 permits the use of position: absolute with table elements;
however, XSL presently does not specify absolute-position as applicable to
fo:table*.

Nevertheless, CSS2 does express the following caveat (as amended in the CSS2
errata):

Note. Table cells may be positioned, but this is not recommended: absolute and
fixed positioning, as well as floating, remove a box from the flow, affecting
table size.

Regards,
Glenn Adams
