# [NTG-context] embeddedxtable

```I can get rid of the unwanted spaces before the table by inserting a whole bunch of \unskip's in my code. All the \unskip's in the following code are necessary. I guess this observation will be enough to repair the ConText code. Or do I have to change something in my code?

\startxmlsetups xmlcommon:tr
\unskip
\xmlstripanywhere{#1}{.}
\unskip
\bgroup
\unskip
\setupxtableparameters{#1}
\unskip
\startxrow
\unskip\xmlflush{#1}
\stopxrow
\egroup
\unskip
\stopxmlsetups

\startxmlsetups xmlcommon:td
\unskip
\xmlstrip{#1}{.}
\bgroup
\setupxtableparameters{#1}
\startxcell[nc=\xmlattdef{#1}{colspan}{1},nr=\xmlattdef{#1}{rowspan}{1}]
\xmlflush{#1}
\stopxcell
\egroup
\stopxmlsetups

Here can be seen how every row adds space before the table. I.e. spaces are added and after that the table is put behind. This behaviour was not present when I had the material typeset earlier. The xmlsetup's used were not changed since then.

\startxmlsetups xmlcommon:tr
\xmlstripanywhere{#1}{.}
\bgroup
\setupxtableparameters{#1}
\startxrow
X\xmlflush{#1}
\stopxrow
\egroup
\stopxmlsetups

Further experimenting with different ConTeXt versions:

Trying earlier and latest beta, placing the embeddedxtable inside \midaligned:

version 2014.11.26 puts the embbedxtable to the right over distance width-of-table.

version 2015.03.25 and version 2015.05.23 put the left side of the embeddedxtable in the middle of the page.
Something changed between these two versions. But clearly not enough.

When typesetting inside a \midaligned a version with markers around:

A\startembeddedxtable\xmlflush{#1}\stopembeddedxtable B

then the A and B show up centered and have the width of the table material between them.
The embeddedxtable stuff is placed outside that range starting at the location of the B.
A sketch of what happens:

A   <space of tablewidth>   B<table starts here extending to the right>

Definitely something with embeddedxtable placement, I might guess. Some unwanted spaces in the code perhaps?

With the construct
\startembeddedxtable\xmlflush{#1}\stopembeddedxtable
placed inside a
\midaligned
I used to get a neatly centered content. But now the material is shifted to the right, even sticking out of the page.

Has something changed in the embeddedxtable alignment handling since the end of 2013?

(The embeddedxtable macro was needed because the typeset material exists inside \startbuffer..\stopbuffer.)
