        // ------------------------------ 
        // Table selection is designed as a special state of text selection.
        // It is constructed in general as a collection of TextSegments 
        // ordered pairs of TextPositions. 
        //
        // Table range can have three substates depending on what structural 
        // level of table elements is crossed by a selection from each
        // side of a selection - Cell, Row, Table.
        //
        // TableCellRange - is a range belonging entirely to one Table 
        // and containing rectangular collection of Cells.
        // It is represented by a collection of TextSegments 
        // each of which starts in a normalized position within leftmost Cell 
        // and ends in a normalized position immediately following
        // end of rightmost selected cell (TextSegment.End is the first 
        // position NOT belonging to a segment).
        //
        // TableCrossingSegment - is a segment crossing Table boundary.
        // At least one of its ends is located withing a table, while the other one 
        // is located either in another table or in a text outside of a table.
        // Such range is represented by a single TextSegment with a table-crossing 
        // end aligned to row boundary - if it is starting end of a range, 
        // then it is positioned in the very first normalized position
        // of a Row crossed from this side; if it is ending end of a range, 
        // then it is positioned in a IsAtRowEnd location of that last row.
        //
        // IsAtRowEnd location is defined as a location immediately before
        // closing tag of a TableRow. This position is considered as normalized 
        // (caret can stop in it, even though typing is almost disabled there:
        // only Enter key is allowed to produce new TableRows, and Delete -

        // Table range can have three substates depending on what structural 
        // level of table elements is crossed by a selection from each
        // side of a selection - Cell, Row, Table.
        //
        // TableCellRange - is a range belonging entirely to one Table 
        // and containing rectangular collection of Cells.
        // It is represented by a collection of TextSegments 
        // each of which starts in a normalized position within leftmost Cell 
        // and ends in a normalized position immediately following
        // end of rightmost selected cell (TextSegment.End is the first 
        // position NOT belonging to a segment).
        //
        // TableCrossingSegment - is a segment crossing Table boundary.
        // At least one of its ends is located withing a table, while the other one 
        // is located either in another table or in a text outside of a table.
        // Such range is represented by a single TextSegment with a table-crossing 
        // end aligned to row boundary - if it is starting end of a range, 
        // then it is positioned in the very first normalized position
        // of a Row crossed from this side; if it is ending end of a range, 
        // then it is positioned in a IsAtRowEnd location of that last row.
        //
        // IsAtRowEnd location is defined as a location immediately before
        // closing tag of a TableRow. This position is considered as normalized
