Table of Contents

Syntax #


Purpose #

The s.simpletable.entry annotation is used to tag a span as being the cell content 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).

This annotation can be applied to any content that can be presented in a table cell.

Examples #

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

This content will be organized into a simple table format.

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 s.simpletable.entry:

Note: this rule applies three annotations. In this example, Migrate will apply the s.simpletable.entry annotation only to a span which has the TableTermChar style.

See s.simpletable.head.entry and delete-data-content for more information.

The following is the DITA XML output for the previous rule (relevant portion in bold):
