Thanks !

This is a good technical explanation useful to be linked
from where we go on about PDF generation on the wiki.

I did a few minutes research into this. Any system not
supporting the base14 fonts (which are the only ones not
embedded by default) is seriously broken. Such systems
surely exist but are hardly relevant at this stage because
the PDF we locally generate is intended for the system it
was generated on only (so far).

However (because of the "so far") the above is also a
valuable resource to be linked from the wiki.

This only talks about a particular XML to LaTeX converter
which apparently has a "+" option somewhere. It's got
nothing to do with (La)TeX proper -- or at least not with
any table environment I am aware of.

Those are probably usefully linked from the Mac specific pages.
