I had to think about this recently and decided to scan the input once to
figure out the maximum number of cells (max_cells) per row and then a
second time to process them and pad out to max_cells if there were any
Padding left or right or both (ie., centring) was decidedly tricky in my
circumstance where I was converting html to pdf. I tried different
algorithms but could not think of one which worked in all cases.
What I really wanted was the ability to merge cells. I couldn't figure
that either so I took the centred headings out of the tables altogether
and kept the tables rectangular - or is that isocellular?
