<entry> Table Entry

<entry> is a formatting element used to designate cell contents within the <row> element of a <table>.

Attributes

Certain values set here will override the general values set at a higher level for that column or row (i.e. width, rule display, alignment), otherwise it will inherit values set at higher levels. The extent of a horizontal span is determined by naming the first column (@namest) and the last column (@nameend) in the span.

  • @align – not required. Designates the horizontal position of text within a column. Values may be: left, right, center, char, justify (flush left and right).
  • @altrender – not required. Use if the content of the element should be displayed or printed differently than the rendering established in a style sheet for other occurrences of the element.
  • @audience – not required. Use to set whether the element’s contents will be visible to external users or to internal ones. Possible values are: “internal” and “external.”
  • @char – not required. Used for horizontal alignment of a single character, such as decimal alignment. This attribute names the character on which the text will be aligned, for example a decimal point, an asterisk, or an em-dash.
  • @charoff – not required. Used with horizontal character alignment, such as decimal alignment. When the @align attribute value is “char,” this is the percentage of the current column width to the left edge of the alignment character. Value is a number or starts with a number.
  • @colname – not required. Letters and/or numbers (no spaces) used to match the entry to the name of the column in which it occurs.
  • @colsep – not required. Use “true” to display a vertical rule to the right of the entry’s column and “false” for no vertical rule.
  • @id – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • @lang – not required. Three-letter code that indicates the language in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 639-2b.
  • @morerows – not required. The number of additional rows in a vertical straddle. Must be a number, default is “0” to indicate no additional rows.
  • @nameend – not required. Name of the rightmost column of the span. Must be the column name as defined by @colname within <colspec>.
  • @namest – not required. Name of the leftmost column of a span. Must be the column name as defined by @colname within <colspec>.
  • @rowsep – not required. Use “true” to display a horizontal rule below the row and “false” for no horizontal rule.
  • @script – not required. Four-letter code that indicates the script in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 15924.
  • @valign – not required. Used to set the vertical positioning of text within a table cell. Values are: top, middle, and bottom.
