Date: June 1, 2009 8:58:08 AM CEST
This package is new at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Thanks again, Jim Hefferon Saint Michaels College ......................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: tabularew Author's name: Diego Saba Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/tabularew Summary description: tabular extension to improve alignment of multicolumn cells License type: lppl Announcement text:
The tabularew environment is similar to tabular (LaTeX kernel) but adds a new command to modify the horizontal alignment in certain circumstances. It solves the problem of centering multicolumn headings when they are wider than the text underneath them. (In a tabular environment they are aligned to the left, even if they contain a "c" in their preamble.) It is actually a workaround for a (mis)feature of TeX alignment algorithm. Comments and suggestions are welcome, especially for the user interface.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/tabularew . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/tabularew (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

tabularew – A variation on the tabular environment

The package offers a modification of the tabular environment, which deals with the problem of column heads that are significantly wider than the body of the column.
