Re: [O] Booktabs in new LaTeX exporter

Hi Tom,
 I hacked together a preliminary solution that uses the booktabs and threeparttable (for footnotes) packages,  based on the suggestion in section 13.2 of http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-latex-export.html 
It seems to do OK in a simple example, and I will test it some more. It does not export to html.
Thanks for your help.

I think the :align attribute expects a string instead of a symbol, so
:align "rr" is probably what you want.

I don't know about the new html exporter yet, but I'd be surprised if it
looks at LaTeX attributes.  You might want to experiment with alignment
cookies in the table to see if they do what you want:


I haven't used threeparttable or ctable.  Org footnotes work inside
tables, if you want the note to appear outside the table.

Typesetting tables is hard.  Let the list know if you get Org to work
with either of these packages.

All the best,
