Latest release of Novelang available here.
This version brings tables!
While source documents prevent to embed any formatting information it's possible to have very fine control at stylesheet level, with all FO power! Novelang documetation does this for its PDF, by overriding
n:cell... elements when it detects a special style (purposefully named
character-escapes here). See
pdf.xsl. The style is set from the
novelang.nlb book file, which sets the structure of the whole Book.
See release notes for details.
