Table of Contents

Syntax #


Purpose #

The p.simpletable.head annotation is used to tag an element as being the header row of a simple table. A simple table is any table of uniform size and shape with no additional formatting or captions applied. This annotation creates a table, so to be applied correctly, the content must not be contained within a table (see Example).

Examples #

The following is an example of a time where you might want to use the p.simpletable.head annotation:

This content will be organized into a simple table format. The p.simpletable.head annotation will be used to mark the first row (Date | Significance | Region) as the header row.

This content is already in a table, and will not correctly apply annotations related to simple tables.

The following is an example of a rule that will apply p.simpletable.head:

Note: this rule applies two annotations. In this example, Migrate will apply the p.simpletable.head annotation only to a paragraph containing a span which has the SimpleHeadChar style.

See p.simpletable.row for more information.

The following is an example of the DITA output you would get from this annotation.
