In this session, we’re going to talk about tables. Want to change the table from a simple block of tabulated data into something pretty and easy to scan? Want alternating colored rows? Want a fancy border around the table?
With Arbortext Styler, you have access to the APP Engine for publishing, so you can do all of this and more! Whatever you can dream up to change the look and feel of tables, you can do it in Styler. In this session, we will show you how to get started.
- Remember different tables are formatted according to different element rules
Just because it looks like a table doesn’t mean it’s a table.
A table is not a properties, is not a dl.
- Using properties in the OOTB stylesheet and modules in the samples directory
- Doing tricky things like alternating row colors
