% WATCH OUT: don't change this model else trialtypesetting
% compatibility problems

% watch out, cells expand pretty late on a per row basis

% |p2|p3| 2:3
% spanning

% Be careful with changing the hsize calculation in p mode;
% the following code works quite well:
%
% \setupfield [line][location=low,height=1.2\lineheight,width=\hsize]
% \definefield [test] [line] [line] []
%
% \starttabulate[|l|p|]
% \NC test \NC \field [test] \NC \NR
% \stoptabulate

% In-text tabbing environment
%
% \starttabulate[| separated template] % eg [|l|p|] or [|l|p|p|]
%   \NC ... \NC ... \NC\NR
% \stoptabulate
%
% with: two pass auto width calculation when no p-width
% specified, even with multiple p's, see examples.

%  TaBlE compatible specifications:
%
%  l  align column/paragraph left
%  r  align column/paragraph right
%  c  align column/paragraph center
%  p  p(dimen) of automatisch als alleen p
%  w  column width
%  f  font#1
%  B  bold
%  I  italic
%  S  slanted
%  T  type
%  R  roman
%  m  math
%  M  display math
%  h  hook (inner level or par lines)
%  b  before (may be command#1)
%  a  after
%  i  i<n> skip left of column
%  j  i<n> skip right of column
%  k  i<n> skip around column

%  s  setups

%  g  g{char} align at char
%  .  align at .
%  ,  align at ,

%  Still to be done

%  N      math numbers (best hook into existing digits mechanism)
%  n      numbers (best hook into existing digits mechanism)
%  Q      math numbers (best hook into existing digits mechanism)
%  q      numbers (best hook into existing digits mechanism)
%  ~      \hskip.5em
%  |      check

%  nesting

%  10     evt auto stack; dan wel andere signal dan void nodig

%  present but not yet 100% ok
%
%  \FL    top hrule
%  \ML    mid hrule (with auto split)
%  \LL    bottom hrule
%  \HL

%  \VL    as soon as needed
%  color  as soon as needed

%  \EQ \RQ \HQ  equal  (raw, hook)
%  \NC \RC \HC  normal (raw, hook)
%
%  \NR

%  \HR : rule with lineheight

%  \autotabulaterule : with lineheight, not first/last
%  \autotabulateline : spaced, not first/last
%  \tabulaterule     : with lineheight
%  \tabulateline     : spaced

% tricky: align scans ahead, over # and expands ones before
% while doing
