The OASIS (nee SGML Open) Exchange Table Model  that is one of the most widely implemented ones includes table headers but not table footers. So in this case, it might not be "able to implement" issues, but "already deployed software, interfaces, documents, and user-education" issues that put table-footer in the extended category. Certainly, that is my position. >b) I fear I miss an explanation of how to do lists in "basic" mode, >without <list-item-label>. can anyone expound? Table B5 says (for list-item-label) "extended; fallback: labels that break across multiple lines are treated as separate blocks before list-item-body." I believe that is intended to mean that *some* implementation of list-item-label (i.e., that described as the fallback) must be implemented in all (e.g., basic) implementations, but the full semantic (that also handles multi-line labels) is an extended feature. paul  http://www.oasis-open.org/html/a503.htm XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
