EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0


EAD Elements: <entry> Table Entry

Description:

A formatting element that designates the contents of a cell in a table. A cell is the intersection of a row and a column. The <entry> attributes control cell spanning, cell rotation, alignment of the contents, and the rules on the cell edges. The attributes can be specified for <entry> or inherited from the nearest of the following table elements: <table>, <tgroup>, <spanspec>, <colspec>, <tbody>, or <row>.

Three attributes are used together to force horizontal alignment on a specific character, such as a decimal point. The ALIGN attribute must be set to "char" (align="char"). The CHAR attribute should be set to the specific character on which the text will align (for example the decimal point, char="."). The CHAROFF attribute controls the position of the alignment. CHAROFF names the percentage of the current column width that is to the left of the alignment character (for example, charoff="30").

The extent of a horizontal span is determined by naming the first column (NAMEST) and the last column (NAMEEND) in the span.

By convention, the specified rule is printed or displayed to the right of the column. External rules are specified using the FRAME attribute of the <table> element, horizontal rules are specified using ROWSEP.

See the example under the <table> element.
