Subject: HTML3 tables Message-Id: <MICHAELJ.email@example.com> From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Michael Johnson) To: email@example.com (HTML discussion list) Date: Fri, 02 Dec 94 08:04:54 EST I withdraw my objection to VALIGN, seeing as how I implemented it in a couple of hours yesterday. I would like to see the DTD augmented with some implementation notes, however. It's easy enough to realize that you need to keep track of the maximum height of a row during the first formatting pass, what is not so obvious is that there is a trick you can use to avoid having to do a second formatting pass. The trick is to keep track of which visual elements are formatted in each cell, and then go back and "fix" their vertical position based on VALIGN after the entire row is formatted. Some words to that effect, as well as reiterating the need for a pre-pass on tables, would be helpful. Onward... Michael Johnson Relay Technology, Inc.
