EAD Elements: <colspec> Table Column Specification

Description:

An empty formatting element that designates the position and size of a single column in a Table <table>. Attributes specify the unique name of the column, its unique number within the table, its width and rules, and the horizontal alignment of text within the column. The quantity of columns in a <table> is determined by the COLS attribute of the <tgroup> element, not by the number of <colspec>s defined. The values set for <colspec> override any values implied from <tgroup>, <thead>, or <tfoot> elements.
