AOLpress Help

There are no longer major differences between the way tables are displayed in HTML 3.2 and Netscape modes. To see the details of the table designs below, place the cursor in the table you want to view and look in the Show HTML window. The window will scroll to the cursor's location. You can use the Show HTML option to see how these tables have been implemented.

Table Attributes

The table below should be 10 ems wide, divided equally between the columns.

The table below should be 80 pixels wide, divided equally between the columns.

The table below should be 40% of the screen width, divided equally between the columns.

The table below should be 1 inch wide, divided equally between the columns.

The table below should be 2.5 centimeters wide, divided equally between the columns.

The table below should have three columns, the first 5 ems wide (and left justified) the second 6 ems (and centered) and the third 4 ems (and right justified).

left 5 center 6 right 4

The table below should have three columns, the first twice as wide as the second which in turn is twice as wide as the third. It should stretch all the way across the screen.

left 4 center 2 right 1

This table should be on the left of the page.

This table should be centered

Netscape does not support the above mechanism, so perhaps you are better off doing this (which should also be centered, but is not good html)

This table should be on the right

Tables may have their columns grouped:

break after
this column

Or their rows grouped.

break after this row

This table uses a Netscape specific tag to create cell padding.

This table has 5 pixel padding and 6 pixel spacing
with a 5 pixel border.

AOLpress also supports the Frame attribute, which may be used to select which bits of the table border should be drawn.

this table only has top
and bottom borders.

And the RULES attribute which specifies which, if any, of the internal lines of the table get drawn

this table has no
internal rules.

It is also possible only to draw lines around the major groups of the table

cell 1 cell 2 cell 3
cell 4 cell 5 cell 6

Tables can have captions, above

caption
fiddle, dee, dee

and below

caption
Gallia est omnes
divisa in partes


Row attributes

Rows may be aligned horizontally

right and right and righter...
centered center c
left to the left, ever to the left l

and vertically

Top t1
t2
Middle t1
t2
Bottom t1
t2
Baseline t1
t2
Default middle


Cell Attributes

Cells may also be aligned vertically

a b c a
b
c

Or horizontally

a

aaaaa

b

bbbbbb

c

cccccc

And may be split across several rows, or columns or both

a
b c d e f


Color and Width Extensions

Microsoft's Internet Explorer adds several colorful extensions. Netscape now supports several of these extensions, also.

A table may have a background color which is different from that of the page.

And then a cell within the table may have its own background

The color of the lines used to draw the borders may also be controlled.

And the light and shadow lines may have a different color

And each cell may do its own thing

Each cell may be assigned a certain pixel width

Obsolete, but supported mechanisms

The table below should have three columns, the first 10 ens wide (and left justified) the second 12 ens (and centered) and the third 8 ens (and right justified).

left 10 center
12
right 8

The table below should have three columns, the first twice as wide as the second which in turn is twice as wide as the third. It should stretch all the way across the screen.

left 20 center 10 right 5
