Hello (Hans especially ;0),

I made split TABLEs work with the following patch from Hans below.
Got it to work beautifully, but there's a major problem: the page just
before the split table 'overflows' on the bottom (see

Any hints on how to remedy this are greatly appreciated ...


% Fixing multipage table according to Hans Hagen:
% in core-ntb : we check the flag 
% in page-flt : we add a flag 
\newif\ifinsidesplitfloat % will become chardef
\def\dosplitfloat[#1]#2% nog dubbele refs
  {\ifinsidecolumns    % tzt ook nog figuren splitten
     % not yet supported
     \TABLEcaptionheight\@@silines\lineheight % brrr
     \simplifypagebreak % \page becomes \goodbreak
          {\setbox2\vsplit\nextbox to \lineheight
             \ifcase\rawnumber[\??si]\or \ifdim\nextboxht=\zeropoint
             \fi \fi
% beware: you need to set the splitmethod to b (boxed split)
