Yes, you do NOT need Adam DiCarlo's fix if you are using the latest
versions of JadeTex. Sebastian fixed the problem with, I believe,
version 3.3 or 3.4. (He is now up to 3.6.)  The home page is at:

I had this exact problem in the e-smith manual and it was fixed
by using the latest version of JadeTex.  Once you have that installed,
you can add these two lines to your DSSSL customization layer:

  (define %cals-cell-before-column margin% 3pt)
  (define %cals-cell-after-column margin% 3pt)

(those are found in dbtable.dsl.)  It worked fine for me.
