>> Can one table row be spread to multiple lines? >All the cells of a table in a given row have to be in a line but a single cell can contain multiple lines of text (in both xhtml and mathml tables). If I understood your original layout request, that is all that's needed isn't it? (accepting your point that using tables might be harmful to the semantic understanding of the document) No, not really: Example #1(I'd consider this as "good"): 1 = 0 <=> x^2 = -1 <=> sqrt(4) = 4 => 1/x^2 + 1/x^4 + 1/x^6 + 1/x^8 |(end of screen/paper) + 1/x^16 + 1/x^32 + 1/x^64 + 1/x^128 = -10 Exaple #2(This would be the result of table use): 1 = 0 <=> x^2 = -1 <=> sqrt(4) = 4 => 1/x^2 + 1/x^4 + 1/x^6 + 1/x^8 + 1/x^16 +1/x^32 = -10|(end of screen/paper) + 1/x^64 + 1/x^128 If you rendered example #2 into a math teaching book I'm pretty sure that this would be considered wrong. Besides it might be less readable than example #1. Regards, Bernd FuhrmannReceived on Tuesday, 28 October 2003 10:07:15 GMT
