Hi Dorothy, I have tables in which some of the columns are aligned for computation (e.g. table 3.2 in attached example). Also attached is an attempt to transcribe it. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Martha
Your format is good. However, you must use the numeric indicator in your table because you would need guide dots, and there are minus signs in the table entries. I have attached a suggestion for another way to do the tables. I'm not saying you must do it my way, or even that my way is the correct way -- I'm just showing another option. Also, this is a sequentially numbered table in a technical text, so the table label must be on line 25 of every page to which the table extends. I am open to suggestions about ways to improve my attempt. I was trying to avoid having to key the summations at the bottom of the 3rd and 4th columns.
