class TaskJuggler::ReportTableColumn

The ReportTableColumn class models the output format independend column of a ReportTable. It usually just contains the table header description. The table header comprises of one or two lines per column. So each column header consists of 2 cells. @cell1 is the top cell and must be present. @cell2 is the optional bottom cell. If @cell2 is hidden, @cell1 takes all the vertical space.

For some columns, the table does not contain the usual grid lines but another abstract object that responds to the usual generator methods such as #to_html(). In such a case, @cell1 references the embedded object via its special variable. The embedded object then replaced the complete column content.
