      Description

      I've seen examples where a percentage was used in
      proportional-column-width(numeric). FOP raises an error in this case, but I
      think that's wrong. The spec says:
      "Percentages are values that are counted in 1/100 units. That is, 10% as a
      percentage value is 0.10 as a floating point number."
      and
      "For example, a value of "110%" on a "font-size" property would be evaluated to
      mean 1.1 times the current font size. Such a definition of the allowed
      conversion for percentages is specified on the property definition. If no
      conversion is specified, the resulting value is a percentage."

      http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl11/#d0e5420

      I interpret this so that the proportional-column-width(20%) is, in this case,
      simply converted to the numeric value 0.2. So if you consistently use
      percentages to specify the column widths you'd get the expected result.

      Tasks:

      • Get feedback if this view is correct.
      • Write a test case
      • Fix the problem
