Table (XHTML table model)


The rows and columns part of a full table. See documentation for the HTML 4.0 (XHTML) table model. (Note: a full table may include a table caption, a table title, title, table footnotes, introductory paragraphs, etc. and uses the <table-wrap> element.)


The standard XHMTL model has been modified to remove the <caption> element from within the <table> element, because, in the modular Archiving and Interchange DTD Suite, the <caption> element has been made part of the Table Wrapper <table-wrap> element.

For the same reason, the %titles; Parameter Entity for the XHTML table model has been set to the null string (""), since the table title <title> is also part of the Table Wrapper <table-wrap>. No other changes were made to the XHTML table content model.

The <table> element is an element defined by a public table model such as the XHTML Table Model or the OASIS Interchange (CALS) table model. This element is not, in itself, a full table, but only the rows and columns portions of a table. A full table may have other features such as a title, caption, table footnotes, etc. The <table-wrap> element contains the full table. A full table may or may not include a <table> element within it, since other constructions such as 2-part lists may also be given table titles, captions, etc.
