informaltable — A table without a title
informaltable ::= (blockinfo?,textobject*, (graphic+|mediaobject+|tgroup+))
Tables may include column headers and footers, but there is no provision for row headers.
Formatted as a displayed block.
The OASIS Exchange Table Model will replace the full OASIS Table Model.
These elements contain informaltable: answer, appendix, article, bibliodiv, bibliography, blockquote, callout, caution, chapter, constraintdef, example, figure, footnote, glossary, glossdef, glossdiv, important, index, indexdiv, informalexample, informalfigure, itemizedlist, listitem, msgexplan, msgtext, note, orderedlist, para, partintro, preface, procedure, qandadiv, qandaset, question, refsect1, refsect2, refsect3, refsection, refsynopsisdiv, revdescription, sect1, sect2, sect3, sect4, sect5, section, setindex, sidebar, simplesect, step, tip, variablelist, warning.
If ColSep has the value 1 (true), then a rule will be drawn to the right of all columns in this table. A value of 0 (false) suppresses the rule. The rule to the right of the last column in the table is controlled by the Frame attribute, not the ColSep.
Frame specifies how the table is to be framed:
Frame all four sides of the table. In some environments with limited control over table border formatting, such as HTML, this may imply additional borders.
Frame only the bottom of the table.
Place no border on the table. In some environments with limited control over table border formatting, such as HTML, this may disable other borders as well.
Frame the left and right sides of the table.
Frame the top of the table.
Frame the top and bottom of the table.
There is no way to obtain a border on only the starting edge (left, in left-to-right writing systems) of the table.
Label specifies an identifying string for presentation purposes.
Generally, an explicit Label attribute is used only if the processing system is incapable of generating the label automatically. If present, the Label is normative; it will used even if the processing system is capable of automatic labelling.
Orient specifies the orientation of the InformalTable. An orientation of Port is the “upright”, the same orientation as the rest of the text flow. An orientation of Land is 90 degrees counterclockwise from the upright orientation.
If Pgwide has the value 0 (false), then the InformalTable is rendered in the current text flow (with flow column width). A value of 1 (true) specifies that the table should be rendered across the full text page.
If RowSep has the value 1 (true), then a rule will be drawn below all the rows in the InformalTable (unless other, interior elements, suppress some or all of the rules). A value of 0 (false) suppresses the rule. The rule below the last row in the table is controlled by the Frame attribute and the RowSep of the last row is ignored.
This attribute is meaningless on InformalTable..
TabStyle holds the name of a table style defined in a stylesheet (e.g., a FOSI) that will be used to process this document.
This attribute is meaningless on InformalTable.
