Description
In PmWiki’s advanced table markup, an author can specify a rowspan attribute to specify that a table cell spans multiple rows. This is not supported in the PDF conversion.

Proposed solution
The problem is that HTML and LATEX use different table models. We have to modify the Wikibook XML to insert empty placeholder cells in the rows below the spanning cell. We might start by creating a rowspan markup for simple tables.

Resolution
Version 2.2.6 of the Cookbook:PublishPDF library adds markup for rowspan in simple tables and improves handling of rowspan and colspan attributes in advanced tables. To do this, it inserts cells into the advanced table, with ⋮ (rowspan) and … (colspan) fillers. See Monday, 6 October 2008.
