<table> Table

<table> is a wrapper element for formatting information for display in rows and columns.

It may occur within: <accessrestrict>, <accruals>, <acqinfo>, <altformavail>, <appraisal>, <arrangement>, <bibliography>, <bioghist>, <blockquote>, <controlaccess>, <controlnote>, <custodhist>, <dsc>, <fileplan>, <footnote>, <index>, <legalstatus>, <odd>, <originalsloc>, <otherfindaid>, <phystech>, <prefercite>, <processinfo>, <relatedmaterial>, <scopecontent>, <separatedmaterial>, and <userestrict>.

Attributes

  • @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.”
  • @colsep – not required. May be used to specify a rule “true” (or “false” for no rule) which will print or display between each column (can be overriden at a lower level).
  • @frame – not required. Can be used to set whether or not the table will display a frame. The frame itself will have to be created via XSL and CSS. Possible values are: top, bottom, topbot, all, sides, none.
  • @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.
  • @pgwide – not required. May be used to specify whether the table runs the width of the page or the width of the column(s). “true” fills page, “false” (default) is only by column.
  • @rowsep – not required. May be used to specify a rule “true” (“false” for no rule) which will print or display below each row (can be overriden within the rows).
  • @script – not required. Four-letter code that indicates the script in which the element’s contents were written. It should come from ISO 15924.
