Array (Simple Tabular Array)


Defines an arrangement of material in rows and columns that is not a true table but merely a small block of one or more rows and columns in the flow of the narrative, typically presented as a block with space before it and after it. (Uses the XHTML table body element or a graphic to express the rows and columns.)


Display Note: Array (Simple Tabular Array)s are not allowed to float; they are tied to their positions in the text. True tables are allowed to float in text or be anchored, as determined by the value of their position attribute.

Conversion Note: Array (Simple Tabular Array)s have neither labels, titles, nor captions; row and column material that has labels, titles, or captions should be tagged as a table (element Table Wrapper <table-wrap>). A graphic containing simple tabular material that occurs within a paragraph or between two paragraphs should be tagged as an <array>, not merely as a loose <graphic> or as a <fig> or <table>.
