Attributes

Name Description Data Type Default Value Required?
colname Specifies the table column name in which an entry is found. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
namest Specifies the first logical column that is included in a horizontal span. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
nameend Specifies the last logical column that is included in a horizontal span. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
morerows Specifies the number of additional rows to add in a vertical span. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
colsep Column separator. A value of 0 indicates no separators; 1 indicates separators. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
rowsep Row separator. A value of 0 indicates no separators; 1 indicates separators. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
align Describes the alignment of text in a table column. Allowable values are:
left
Indicates left alignment of the text.
right
Indicates right alignment of the text.
center
Indicates center alignment of the text.
justify
Justifies the contents to both the left and the right.
char
Use the character specified on the char attribute for alignment.
-dita-use-​conref-​target
See Using the -dita-use-conref-target value for more information.
(left | right | center | justify | char | -dita-use-​conref-​target) #IMPLIED No
char Specifies the character for aligning the table entry data.

Default source for entry elements starting in this column. If character alignment is specified, the value is the single alignment character source for any implied char values for entry immediately in this column. A value of "" (the null string) means there is no aligning character.

For example, if align="char" and char="r", then text in the entry should align with the first occurrence of the letter "r" within the entry.

CDATA #IMPLIED No
charoff Specifies the horizontal offset of alignment character when align="char".

Default source for entry elements starting in this column. For character alignment on an entry in the column, horizontal character offset is the percent of the current column width to the left of the (left edge of the) alignment character.

This value should be number, greater than 0 and less than or equal to 100.

For example, if align="char", char="r", and charoff="50", then text in the entry should align 50% of the distance to the left of the first occurrence of the character "r" within the entry.

NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
valign Indicates the vertical alignment of text in a table entry (cell). Allowable values are:
top
Align the text to the top of the table entry (cell).
bottom
Align the text to the bottom of the table entry (cell).
middle
Align the text to the middle of the table entry (cell).
-dita-use-​conref-​target
See Using the -dita-use-conref-target value for more information.
(top | bottom | middle | -dita-use-​conref-​target) #IMPLIED No
rev Indicates a revision level of an element that identifies when the element was added or modified. It may be used to flag outputs when it matches a run-time parameter; it cannot be used for filtering. It is not sufficient to be used for version control.If no value is specified, but the attribute is specified on an ancestor within a map or within the related-links section, the value will cascade from the closest ancestor. CDATA #IMPLIED No
base A generic attribute that has no specific purpose. It is intended to act as a base for specialized attributes that have a simple value syntax like the conditional processing attributes (one or more alphanumeric values separated by whitespace), but is not itself a filtering or flagging attribute. The attribute takes a space-delimited set of values. However, when acting as a container for generalized attributes, the content model will be more complex; see Attribute generalization for more details. CDATA #IMPLIED No
id-atts attribute group (id, conref, conrefend, conaction, conkeyref) A set of related attributes, described in id-atts attribute group      
localization-atts attribute group (translate, xml:lang, dir) A set of related attributes, described in localization-atts attribute group.      
global-atts attribute group (xtrf, xtrc) A set of related attributes, described in global-atts attribute group      
class, outputclass Common attributes described in Other common DITA attributes
