In-Depth Information
charoff This attribute is used to indicate the number of characters by which the column
data should be offset from the alignment characters specified by the char value.
span When present, this attribute applies the attributes of the col element to additional
consecutive columns.
valign This attribute specifies the vertical alignment of the text within the cell. Possible
values for this attribute are baseline , bottom , middle , and top .
width This attribute specifies a default width for each column in the current column group.
In addition to the standard pixel and percentage values, this attribute might take the special
form 0* , which means that the width of each column in the group should be the minimum
width necessary to hold the column's contents. Relative widths, such as 0.5* , also can be
<table border="1" width="400">
<col align="center" width="150" />
<col align="right" />
<td> This column is aligned to the center. </td>
<td> This one is aligned to the right. </td>
<tr><td> ! </td><td> ? </td></tr>
<tr><td> ! </td><td> ? </td></tr>

• Under XHTML 1.0 and XHTML5, <col> requires a trailing slash: <col /> .
• This element should appear within a colgroup element, and, like that element, it is
somewhat of a convenience feature used to set attributes with one or more table
columns. In practice, few developers seem to use it.
<colgroup> (Table Column Group)
This element creates an explicit group of table columns containing col elements to provide
for table column-level scripting or formatting.
Standard Syntax
align="center | char | justify | left | right"
