Subject: Re: table exporters should exclude column width specifiers
Date: Mon, 2 Feb 2009 13:32:39 +0100	[thread overview]

Hi Dan,

Use the following:

|   | aa    | bb    |
|---+-------+-------|
| / | <5>   | <5>   |
|   | xxxx  | yyyy  |

Works for all kinds of export, I believe, documented under "Advanced  
Features"
in the table chapter of the manual.

HTH

- Carsten
