Anybody commenting on the above?

Other things I've noticed:

- Even with version 6.28, the #+TBLNAME' tag must be located in column 0 (at
least, for the highlighting features to work)

- Remote references to other tables are great, but they only work with
absolute references, not with named cells. On the wishlist (easy to
say ;-)), I image it'd be utmost useful to be able to name a cell and reuse
its name in a remote ref.

Thanks for any commentary on the above...

Thank you very much Carsten, Bastien and Co...
Seb
