I would endorse the comments by '''Tgr''' so far as they go, but it is important to remember that making a collection is a necessary prerequisite to pulling it form MediaWiki2LaTeX. Also, the collection extension was originally intended to build reading lists, whether for offline reading as a "book" or online reading simply as a more functional alternative to bookmarks/favourites lists. I do not know how much it is used for this, but the focus on "book" building does not make it obvious to inexperienced users. I would hope that we now have a good opportunity to revisit this.

@ovasileva - thank you. I am glad to see that this has not been forgotten. But my request stands: until these other tickets are completed, the stated Problem here remains unfinished business.
Can I ask that you keep it open for now? On en.wikipedia, downloading a single page as a PDF now includes tables, fine. But building a PDF book using Book Creator still does not pull in the tables.
