Processing of OpenOffice files is useful, but tables containing merged cells are not handled
properly, preventing the use of many OpenOffice documents with Forrest.

If you merge two cells in OOo you get this attribute: table:number-columns-spanned="2" and
this could translate into the HTML colspan="2" attribute. But it's not happening - does this
first require an enhancement of the Forrest DTD? Which seems to contain the following:

<!ENTITY % cell.span 'colspan CDATA "1"
         rowspan CDATA "1"'> and 


Does this prevent cells from spanning rows and columns?
