Hi Sebastian,

my guess would be that you have customized the td and th tags? If yes,
reset the customization, you need the new default values (which you then can
still modify).

Please check the variables org-export-table-header-tags and

I've checked them, but they are not customized:

  Hide Org Export Table Data Tags:
       Opening tag: <td%s>
       Closing tag: </td>
            State : STANDARD.

This does look right.

  Hide Org Export Table Header Tags:
       Opening tag: <th scope="%s">
       Closing tag: </th>
            State : STANDARD.

This does not look right, it should be

       Opening tag: <th scope="%s"%s>
       Closing tag: </th>

The export of the OPs table works as expected. But the table I've sent
is different in that it just uses empty `<>' marks for grouping and
creating lines.

While I do not think it is particularly nice that you
try to fool the parser in this way :-/
it actually behaves quite well :-D

Here is what I get when I export this table:

<table border="2" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="6" rules="groups" frame="hsides">
<colgroup><col align="right" /></colgroup><colgroup><col align="left" /
</colgroup><colgroup><col align="left" /></colgroup>
<tr><th scope="col" style="text-align:right">A</th><th scope="col"
style="text-align:left">B</th><th scope="col" style="text-
<tr><td style="text-align:right">1</td><td style="text-
align:left">bar</td><td style="text-align:left">text</td></tr>
<tr><td style="text-align:right">12</td><td style="text-
align:left">test</td><td style="text-align:left">300</td></tr>
<tr><td style="text-align:right">9</td><td style="text-
align:left">foo</td><td style="text-align:left">4</td></tr>

The left/right comes from the analysis of the number of numbers
in each column...

So I must assume that maybe some of your files did not
update correctly or you have some old compiled files... ?

Hi Carsten,

one more, sorry.

How about this (line-wrapped for readability):

 <td class="right">1</td>
 <td class="left">bar</td>
 <td class="left">text</td>

instead of

 <td style="text-align:right">1</td>
 <td style="text-align:left">bar</td>
 <td style="text-align:left">text</td>


Combined with the ways to add IDs and classes to tables, we could then style the
columns better.

I would like to set this for right aligned <td> tags as default:

  td.right { font-family:monospace;text-align:right; }

OK, fair enough.  But I don't think I will make the monospace
the Org default, it looks a bit odd.  BUt of cause you can change

I have now in the default style:

  td, th { vertical-align: top;  }
  th.right  { text-align:right;  }
  th.left   { text-align:left;   }
  th.center { text-align:center; }
  td.right  { text-align:right;  }
  td.left   { text-align:left;   }
  td.center { text-align:center; }

Is there a way to write this more compactly?
