standard for calculation tables


Certain types of tables specify calculations. For example you might
have a table in which the first column is a range of a monetary
amount, the second column is a certain tax rate, the third column
another tax rate and the fourth yet another tax rate dependent on how
the money was earned.

an example

<tr><td>$100,000 - $150,000</td><td>18%</td><td>22%</td><td>45%</td></tr>

assuming reasonable headers and other table structure aside from that
example row.

Now what I would like is something that allowed one to specify the
calculations, separate from the table structure. Something like

<calc><input type="range" inttype="currency"
type="multiply" format="percentile">18</function><function
type="multiply" format="percentile">22</function><function
type="multiply" format="percentile">45</function></calc>

So it should have enough description in it that I can generate a
tabular view - such as in the fragment above of the html table, but
also enough that I could generate a form for the simple calculations
such a table represents.

From the examples I've seen of SASOUT it doesn't seem to do this - but
from my understanding of how it should work it might be possible to do
it but then if it is possible I would have to assume it would
extremely verbose and difficult - again given examples I've seen. So I
guess what I'm saying if you are going to say that SASOUT does this, I
am hoping for something other that SASOUT cause if that was my choice
I'd probably roll my own. :(
