Floating and display tables

The default {table} environment in LATEX with all options will work correctly and can be used in NEPTUNE. E.g.,

 \begin{table}
  \caption{Relation between the calculated and measured bin sizes
           \xlabel{tab:DNL_bin_110MHz}}
  \begin{tabular*}
    {\columnwidth}
    {@{\hspace*{6pt}}@{\extracolsep{\fill}}*{4}{l}@{\hspace*{6pt}}}
    \beginthead
    Phase $j$ & Input signal & Calculated & Measured\\
    \endthead
    % \hline
    0 & 4.62 & 0.20 & 0.21 \\
    1 & 4.70 & 0.20 & 0.20 \\
    2 & 4.79 & 0.34 & 0.36 \\
    3 & 4.73 & 0.39 & 0.37 \\
    \bottomrule
  \end{tabular*}
 \end{table}

The starred variant ({table*}) shall be used when large-sized tables have to be included in a two-column page layout.

The {tabular*} needs to be used always as we need to control the width of the tabular, often we have to span the tabular to the width of the column depending on the number and size of columns.

The commands \beginthead and \endthead are extra structuring additions to augment XML generation. Those will further add horizontal rules above and below tabular heading row(s).

\bottomrule has to be added before the tabular ending command \end{tabular*}, to insert a rule at the bottom of the tabular.

Display table: A non-floating table without caption shall be provided as:

 \begin{informaltable}
  \begin{tabular}{<column specs>}
    ... ... ... \\
    ... ... ... \\
    ... ... ... \\
    ... ... ...
  \end{tabular}
 \end{informaltable}
