Wouldn't it be better to have numbers in vertical ruler positioned vertically?
Gandalf: and how do you propose to do that ?
hmm.. by implementing CSS3 glyph-orientation-vertical into gecko? But i only asked a question.
Wouldn't it be nice if you can sort and/or move the columns and rows?
So you can put your data in the table, have a look at it and then you can say ..Oh no I think it looks better if the last column go to the beginning of the table.
I think there is no htmleditor where you can do such things.
But thats perhaps too much for an editor!?
(Excuse my bad english)
May you add a sum of the horizontal ruler? eg. in the example above (your screenshot) you have two colums: one with 351px and the second with 378px. If you offer the sum of both -> 739px this will we useful for keeping smaller screnn-resolutions in mind. This sum should also include the width of margins...
Actually, vertical numbers would be significantly harder to read, and require the user to turn their head to see them. Edward Tufte goes on quite a crusade against them in Visual Display of Quantitative Information.

... et si les indications chiffrées étaient en infobulles ?(d'ailleurs, c'est très chouette de pouvoir les éditer avec Nvu pour annoter élégamment un texte électronique)

So does this only work with pixel sizes? Aren't tables with pixel-sized layouts considered A Bad Thing? I consider them bad because I can't think of a use for pixel-sized tables except for doing table-based layouts.
Hey, Daniel, did you notice that NVU 0.2 english for linux and windows was shipped on "c't software kollektion 4", distributed with the 14th issue of the c't magazine by Heise Verlag here in germany?
(yikes, what a sentence)
[about NVU distribution]
... vu aussi NVU sur un Cédérom d'une distribution pour Linux (Yoper ou un truc comme ça) dans un magazine
Got nvu-0.3 on Linux. The source code font is very tiny and I don`t know how to enlarge....(maybe someone`s got a hint)
Would be neat to customize such things in "Preferences...".
[Warning: I've not yet played around with nvu 0.3]
do you plan to support also other units than "px"? For instance, "%" and "em"? Since I had so far no chance to play with 0.3, are users also able to just click in to ruler and enter a new value? Or is this currently "mouse only" (drag-n-drop)?
