Description Michael Kay 2016-11-11 12:15:40 UTC
In the new HTML5 rendition of the F+O spec, there are some problems with tables.

* Tables that list the names and summaries of functions (see for example ยง5.4) break the function names at a hyphen

* Tables of option values (which use variable rowspans) have a poor appearance; rules are needed to make the structure clear, and there is a need for some padding between cells.
Comment 1 Michael Kay 2016-11-15 16:07:03 UTC
I have solved (1) by tweaking the CSS.

I have solved (2) by putting the option parameter details into structured information in the function catalog and generating the table representation of the data.

Leaving the bug open because other tables need to be reviewed.
Comment 2 Michael Kay 2016-12-05 14:44:10 UTC
I have now reviewed and in many cases revised the rendition of the other tables in the spec and they are now considered presentable.
