Reply to: TOPLEAF: Table width for simpletablesJune 14, 2013 at 11:20 pm
In order to produce the best result for any page width, the conversion always uses relative column widths. As a consequence the table will always use the maximum width available.
Since the underlying table model is CALS, the only way to do what you want is to specify absolute column widths. DITA does not appear to have a means of allowing this, but if you can suggest a way we can look at including it in the pre-processing.
