Not yet

The purpose is to apply style to the column instead of each cell in the
column. For example you can set color and width on the <col> element. It
will apply to the whole column.
If you don't plan to use exploit these <col> elements, their creation
doesn't disturb either the rendering nor the editing of tables.

I agree we have to provide a command to create <colgroup> element. The
number of <col> must be equal to the number of columns in the table.
It's now done by default in Amaya.

Next step is to manage <col> and <colgroup> directly on the table.

We're doing several tests that week. If all works, the release Amaya 11
will be out next week (probably Tuesday).
