Wow... you are taking on by far the most complicated kind of markup in

I would very, very strongly recommend using the DocBook XSL stylesheets
as a starting point.  Even if you don’t use any of their
transformations, there is a large library of utility functions contained
in them for doing things like figuring out table cell column numbers,
alignment, etc.
