The "number-rows-spanned" and "number-columns-spanned" are
XSL properties, not CSS properties and not HTML attributes.

Their definition and semantics are as defined in the XSL
specification, not the HTML specification.

The current definition in the XSL specification does not
allow a value of zero for these properties.
