PDF Tagging - layout tables.


From: Murphy, Sean

I have a request from one of our developers how to apply role="presentation" to a PDF document. From my research this appears not possible. The documents being created are dynamic in nature and the developer is creating a template. The table is being used for laying out information. Yes, might not be the best approach, but this is what we are working with.

How can you simulate the role=presentation approach available in HTML for tables?
Does anyone have development documentation to achieve this functionality?

Any help here would be greatly welcomed.
