In XSL the absolute-position only applies to fo:bock-container and to
absolutely position a table the fo:table needs to be placed inside an
fo:block-container.

Subject:  absolute-position and fo:table*



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.
