Hi, Org people.

When, in an Org table, a column is made up of numbers, each of which is
immediately followed by a percent sign, table formatting within Emacs
right adjusts such numbers in their column, which is nice.  Moreover, if
I publish such tables as HTML, numbers are right adjusted as well.

However, the same table inserted in a Beamer presentation shows the
number /left/ justified in their column, which is a formatting
discrepancy, or at least not what I expected.  Could the justification
of percentages be made more uniform Org-wide?

It's of course possible (even probable) that the latex exporter behaves
differently from the html exporter in this case (and probably many other
cases.) Historically, I believe the latex exporter was the first one and
in those days, each exporter blazed its own trail, so inevitably we have
a divergence of behavior. The new exporters based on Nicolas's
org-element parser will presumably behave a lot more consistently.

In the meantime, you can always override the latex behavior with
something like

#+ATTR_LaTeX: align=|r|r|l|r|l|r|

to set the alignment of each column explicitly without affecting the HTML
output.

Hello, Nick.  

OK, so light comes from the future :-).

Let me thank you for your advice.  It worked very nicely.
