  Ah yes.  That reminds me that I don't know FO as well as to use the
REC as my unique doc.  You are going to sell a book ;-)

I'm glad I was able to help! I hope you find the book useful.

Even though the area in a table cell is a reference area (page 85) you'll see you cannot specify reference-orientation on <table-cell> (page 203), only on a limited number of constructs (page 491).

Knowing that a table cell is a reference area is important for conditionality (page 332). For example, space-before= is discarded at the top of a table-cell unless you specify it being retained.

But I agree it is confusing to know it is a reference area and remember that you cannot specify reference orientation on it.

Thanks for buying a copy.
